    The actual return will be a loser.  Returns to date may yield 8.5%, but AIG, Chrysler, Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae will be big losers, probably total loses.

      all the real estate in the country has to cease to exist. It clearly won't happen. The return was only about TARP, the companies you're mentioning are not part of it. In the end, they will probably lose taxpayers some money but total losses is a gross exaggeration. AIG is a big company with several profitable lines of business, eventually it can make enough money to pay off most of the debt to taxpayers. Probably not all of it though.
