Maher: Due to the Bailout, Big Banks Think ‘Government’s There For You,’ And They Can Fail Again


HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher stated that the 2008 bank bailout made both big banks and Republicans think “well, obviously the government’s there for you so we could actually do that again” on Friday.

During a discussion on the Dodd-Frank Act, Maher said that he didn’t think the legislation was to blame for large banks failing financial “living will” tests, rather “[W]hat happened in 2008, was that these banks failed. We bailed them out, right? And then we got paid back. And I think now the big banks, and the Republicans are like well, obviously the government’s there for you so we could actually do that again. We got paid back. What’s the big problem?”
