Either you save everyone or you save no one and start over from the ground up. To me, the former is less painful because the financial industry is the center pillar of our economy. It fails and everything else goes with it.
There are some entities worth saving and them that aren't. Lehman was not worth saving. Why burn more taxpayer dollars than is absolutely necessary?
