Emerging from the financial crisis, the government has implemented new regulations squarely aimed at the big banks like Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM). The latest potential hit is a proposed tax on the largest financial institutions that breach a given asset threshold.

In this segment of The Motley Fool's financials-focused show, Where the Money Is, banking analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson debate the impact of these regulations and how it influences how they view bank stock multiples.
