As for your contention that taxpayers and governments aren’t getting their “fair share” what does that matter? They’re only there to pay for the nonpareil!

Look, look!! We made $14 Billion profit on TARP!! It is to be expected that some of these loans would be profitable, but any idiot should know the majority will result in HUGE losses, otherwise they never would have been necessary to extend in the first place. And it’s a shame that REUTERS just reports this garbage without asking some questions.

This needs to be revisited every 3- to 6-months and thoroughly analyzed with the results put into perspective. Perspective means no spin by the government!
