Billionaires need more billions, poor people need more poverty. Is that the state of the union?

Yes, and greed is hardly a uniquely American 'virtue'. It's just that this particular scam seems to be unique to the USA.

It is amazing to me that banks have been getting guaranteed 6% interest as part of this provision, yet most standard interest rates for customers is well under 1%. I imagine removing this provision would make it even less attractive to use big banks, while giving a huge benefit to smaller community banks (since they would continue to receive the payout).

Well I can't say that I'd use such language, but I do believe this opportunity for theft should be abolished.

How about next time the banksters hold the economy hostage we break up the banks up into hundreds of little credit unions.

I love how this is a "Revolt" and occupy wall street was an annoying protest.

I wonder what a revolt would actualy be regarded as?

I hate banks, but I'm too lazy to join a credit union.

It can actually be to your financial benefit to join.
