    Spending problem:

    Hmm...let's see....$25 billion settlement minus $22 billion "profit"...subtract the 2 from the 5...equals $3 billion in red ink...and at least $80 to $90 billion of the original $182+ billion AIG bailout (that we know about) was paid to their counterparties...and Wall Street has been receiving over $200 billion per year in stealthy bailouts††† from our government
    $200 billion = $600+ for every man, woman, and child in the USA.
    Not a spending problem:

    Judiciary Branch of the federal government: $7 billion/year
    NASA budget: $16 billion/year
    Federal Transportation budget: $40 billion/year

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
