TARP Recipients

It has been years since the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, commonly referred to as a bailout of the U.S. financial system, became law.  Lest we forget, the bailout was in response to bad loans and cascading losses at financial institutions including the collapse or near-collapse of Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers, AIG and Wachovia.  The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) authorized the U.S. Secretary of Treasury to spend up to $700 billion to purchase distressed assets and to make capital injections into banks.  Here is a partial list of TARP recipients and capital injected:
