Big Banks Set to Pay Back Bailout Funds

Ad Feedback

Ten of the nation's biggest banks are set to pay back government bailout money. 
    
The banks received the funds under President Bush's TARP plan, a program to help restart lending in the ailing economy.
    
Some said the money would never be repaid.
    
Now $68 billion is being repaid with about $2 billion in interest.
    
President Obama calls the repayment a good deal for taxpayers.

"It is worth noting that in the first round of repayments from these companies, the government has actually turned a profit," he said.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration plans to announce some new regulations.
    
They will restrict bonuses for company executives that received money under the program.
