Taking Back Bank of America

It seems that we, the taxpayers, bought Bank of America to the tune of about a trillion dollars or more, so why shouldn't we just move in?

Moving in

In late February of this year a group of Occupy protesters set up house in a Bank of America branch in New York. They reasoned that we - American taxpayers - now own this bank, since we gave it 45 billion dollars in the bailout, and we later gave it, through the Federal Reserve, over a trillion dollars of our money in unsecured loans. Sit back and watch this little vignette and watch as some good, ordinary citizens like you and I bring in their furniture and set up house at B of A. I think it will give you a chuckle.

But that would assume the GREAT USA to be a socialist state and that would simply not do would it? :/)

It makes sense as BOA was bailed out by tax payers' money while those who created the big hole had a party. Thanks for an amusing yet meaningful share, Steve - siva

I do admire these young people. Thank you, Steve, for sharing this video. At least one of the bank's staff found it amusing. I did also but the truth isn't funny.
