The public outrage at the financial sector, which had used its outsize profits to buy the political influence that first freed financial markets from regulations and then secured a trillion-dollar bailout, would likely only grow. It was not clear how long the public would tolerate the hypocrisy of these long-time advocates of fiscal responsibility and free markets continuing to argue against help for poor homeowners on the grounds of moral hazard—that helping them out now would simply lead to more bailouts in the future and reduce incentives to repay loans—at the same time that they made unbridled requests of money for themselves.
