Ask The Man Who Knows- Barofsky Thinks “It’s Unrealistic…We’re Going to Get All That Money Back…”

• Zero Hedge
 Neil Barofsky is a "Czar" (well, isn't everyone these days?) who watches over the $700 billion bailout package given to banks and others to avoid utter collapse; and in a report fully disclosed later today, thinks it’s not realistic that we’ll get all the money back.

The Treasury has spent in excess of $450 billion through TARP programs, and just a few under fifty recipients have paid back about $73 billion worth.


Later today, Obama is expected to announce a community bank assistance plan, as the American Bankers’ Association has asked for some $5 billion in aid, in an effort to extend lending to Main Street.
