Here: http://www.investorplace.com/2012/05/2008-tarp-funds-where-are-they-now/ is very informative review of TARP funds. Who got how much, how much has been repaid, how much has been written off as lost, how much is still out for someone to use. AND even that 51 million dollars are not yet placed - can for example, under the law, be used to help underwater home owner before 2017!!!! The big banks have paid back almost all of what they got but automakers very little. Very interesting stuff and can correct many false statements often made. Take a look.
