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.
