Tracking the Bailout Money

Propublica has a good tool tracking all the money the federal government has given out in both the TARP bailout and the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Their data includes not only how much money institutions received, but how much money they returned.  Interestingly, many banks and financial institutions (which Obama has proposed taxing) have returned all or a a significant portion of their bailout money.  In contrast, the automakers and Fannie and Freddie have returned little or nothing–but they would be exempt from Obama’s new tax.
