    Pretty simple question that is being ignored, WHERE DID THE REPAYMENT GO since the deficit in the last two plus years is approaching 4 trillion dollars? Shouldn't the repayment go to reducing the deficit?
    Yeah, that's in line with the information I have. I'm not sure where her link gets in info from, but it looks wrong.

    nor will we get a response either as that happens a lot. Liberals make claims then when those claims are refuted they go into hiding. What is it about an ideology that creates such loyalty and cult like mentality?

    i feel forced to move up

    my point---when home prices are low, the differential between my modest 3 bedroom and that mini mansion in the gated retirement community is constantly shrinking

    so i wait

    and i don't really want to move, i finally got this place exactly like i want it

    oh well

    we all got problems in tuff times like these

    stay up
    living on that public pension, huh?

Neither in my opinion is a very positive light shining on your POV with respect to this.

    no, what i am saying is any job growth is a sign of life, and i'm not ready to declare us finished.

    I seem to see that the biggest offenders are Govt. controlled entitities, Freddie and Fannie, AIG, and GM/Chrysler. The lessor known banks have very limited liability in the overall picture. My question remains, where did the payback go for those banks that did repay the loans and why aren't you asking that question?

    The link I posted was March 2011 and shows that taxpayer will get a profit. Wonder if the taxpayer will ever see it?

    um...do you NOT realize that we've made a ton on interest payments? Not because it's all been repaid. your link says nothing of the sort.....

    The transfers to the Troubled Asset Relief Program will push recoveries from banks to $251 billion in repayments of capital, dividends, interest and other income. It invested $245 billion in banks during the financial crisis to help avert a U.S. financial system collapse.

    With a growing population do you think that more unemployed this month vs. last month and fewer employed this year vs 2009 is growth?

    you posted that my claims were refuted. they were not, and you also posted i ran away. i did not. juvenile posturing on your part to then come back and change the questions.
