    The GOV has a way of naming their programs. And giving money away.

    Honestly, it looks like free money with no interest.

    If I ran a bank, I would say "TREASURY, 2 BILLION Please".

    Then take that and put it in another place to generate interest.
    It was apparent that company that got it went on a Buying Spree, buying smaller banks, etc.

    I tried getting some of that free money, but they said I wasn't enough of a failure for them to reward me.

    It looks like history repeats itself...

    Just like they got Alcapone, now they're going after AIG...

    Don't mess with the IRS!
