Yea but they aren't supposed to bail out "too big to fail" corporations.
They aren't supposed to fund the bonuses of Wall Street CEO's that ruined the economy.
They aren't supposed to fatten an increasingly larger government that doesn't fix the infrastructure but instead creates more dependent constituencies to further increase power.
They aren't supposed to pay for the interest of the printed money that is created by the Fed. Imagine that, the Fed prints money out of thin air, we work and sweat fro it, and pay a huge portion of it back with taxes and still have to borrow more printed money because there is never enough to pay for the interest.

You've been told what you need, and you believe that someone else is a better judge of what you need, than you.
