Here is the list I have compiled of the Federal Bail Outs and Bridge Loans that have been issued so far in 2008. When you add this to our current budget deficit, it paints a pretty scary picture.
630 Billion – Added Bank Liquidity
25 Billion – Ford/GM
840 Billion – Bail Out Law
85 Billion – AIG
29 Billion – Bear Stearns
200 Billion – Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac
Running Tally: 1.8 Trillion Dollars
Under Discussion - Another 25 Billion to Auto-Makers
If I missed one, let me know.
