    Banks that are getting taxpayer bailouts awarded their top executives nearly $1.6 billion in salaries, bonuses, and other benefits last year, an Associated Press analysis reveals.

    Why did the AP need to do an analysis, with paid experts and lots of guesswork?  Because the govt. refuses to convey info as to how the bailout money is being spent.

    The bailout is reminding me of all those Iraq war supplemental budgets.  

    No oversight.

    The money vanishes.

    A lot of well-placed corporate types get even richer.

    A compromised congress is asked for yet another big appropriation since the previous one didn't quite do the trick.
