Bank of America has been named Villain Number One by many of the Occupy protesters (not to mention most of the other 99%). Bank of America has played a central role in the housing disaster. They bought subprime mortgage giant Countrywide Financial back in 2008. Of the $750 Billion in loans, about $250 Billion are in foreclosure. Deemed “too big to fail,” Bank of America was given billions in taxpayer money and trillions, yes trillions, in emergency loans.
