#1 The not so hidden costs of the Ohio and Michigan Obama re-election campaign:

TARP was approved by Congress as a $700 billion program, though Treasury eventually disbursed $418 billion. On Wednesday it said it had recovered $381 billion to date, or about 90 percent.

#2 "The exit plan may prove to be a boost to GM's lagging stock price and to some car buyers, "

Or not. Maybe the gummint is bailing out because the company is a money black hole. They already got their cut, anyway.

#4 taxpayers will almost certainly lose billions of dollars in the $49.5 billion GM bailout - and the government would need to sell its remaining shares for about $70 each to break even.

Another hosing of the taxpayers. The bondholders got nailed the first go around. The unions made out O.K. as Obama paid them back for their votes. An additional hosing of the taxpayers who didn't like or vote for Obama.

#6 Fred, don't be dogging on Ford. They have worked outside of the Obama bailout machine. I am disappointed that your graphic includes Ford in it.
