If anyone is still keeping score

The much-criticized "taxpayer bailout" of AIG is ending soon. The net cost to taxpayers was a PROFIT of at least $15 billion. I'm not saying the end result justified the initial rescue, but most people think that the AIG bailout was an expenditure of $182 billion in taxpayer funds. More accurately, it was an investment, albeit a risky one. The money has been returned and the Treasury made money on the rescue.
