I saw this in Newsweek the other week and thought it was worth sharing. Funny how most people won't ever mention this on the news. I'm assuming (yes, I know the rule) that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) knows how to count!
"According to the CBO, TARP will cost $25 billion, a fraction of the original $700 billion allotment. Seems like a good deal to, uh, save the global economy."
