    Say the banks all pay back $3 Trillion. How much money have they made off the money so far?

    Apparently 50 companies have paid back some of their TARP funds totalling $72 billion as of the end of October.

    The thing with BofA is that they are having a hard time finding a new CEO to replace Ken Lewis who will work under the rules TARP puts on them.

    Exactly.

    No one will take the job with the government salary restrictions.

    So where did they get the money to repay these loans? They have not been lending money to the public.The way I understand it the Fed reserve has bought some of their assets and now they will use that to pay back the loans.....to the Fed reserve. This certainly is not over and this is not the loans paid in full yet.

    Little to nothing. They are not lending much money they cannot be making much.

    They never were to lend the money. They had to keep the money to stay solvent. I would guess that through the sale of some assets they can now remain solvent without the TARP money. So they're giving it back.

    It looks like it isn't all cash that we are getting back. $26B in cash, $19B in securities. I'd rather see it all in cash.

    They are using 26B in cash they have on hand and coming up with the other 19B by selling securities to private investors. They aren't reimbursing the tax payers with securities.

    They kept it on the books as cash? Some say <G> that the money was used to play the commodities market.

    We?

    So, do you think the government will amend TARP by $45 billion?
