    Kelly King on CNBC!

    =>"...and the treasury slowly recoups the $750B we gave the lenders."

    I must have missed something in the last couple of years. This $750B you're referring to is TARP, correct? I won't quible with the amount that was actually given to the banks (a substantial portion went to the auto companies, fannie & freddie, AIG and not spent at all) but have I not read that a good portion of what the banks received has been paid back with interest?
