<If there is major deflation, banks will fail and so will the FDIC, and the government will not be able to bail it out.>

Failure of the FDIC is tantamount to default of the U.S. government. That is truly a doomsday scenario. I don't think it will happen.

The government can print as much money as it needs, to bail out the FDIC and failed banks. The subsequent inflation is a separate issue.
