The remarks by the Vice President resonated with people precisely because so many have been chained to serious debt and financial ruin by the banks in this country. How many homes have been stolen out from under people? How many people were ruined when the housing market crashed? How many have seen their savings wiped out by banks that are still failing?
Biden's remarks were remarkably intelligent and thought-out. The Boston Globe is simply defending the status quo, which is saddled with enough chains as it is.
