Jodey Arrington: Bank Bailouts Were Wrong Decision [INTERVIEW]
On Friday's Chad Hasty Show, District 19 candidate Jodey Arrington joined the broadcast in the KFYO studio to talk about his campaign and issues important in the race.
Arrington and Hasty discussed many topics, among them insurance and banking, term limits and the growth of the federal government.
Hasty asked Arrington about his stand on the bank and Wall Street bailouts of 2008 and whether or not he would vote to support similar actions.
"First of all, we shouldn't have bailed them out... [Banks and businesses] should have absorbed that pain," Arrington said. "I know the workout would have been longer on our economy, I understand that. And I understand the other side of systemic risk. But I think moral hazard, and [repeating] the same mistakes, is far greater, in the long-term, than short-term systemic risk. So I think they made the wrong decision."
