I heard today that the government is in the black for the bank bailouts and is likely to net $10 billion through this program.
For all of those who were opposed to the bank bailouts, does this change your opinion?
Also, for everyone who feels that the government can't do anyhting right and screws up everythng, this seems to be a great example of the government working quickly and effectively. By all accounts we were in a serious crisis mode and the whole financial system was on the verge of collapse, which would have screwed everyone.
Bush started the program and Obama followed through and stayed the course.
Despite of how unpopular the program was and the heat they took from the public, the politicians seemed to have done the right thing.
