Bailout

The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), commonly called “The Bailout”, is a program of the U.S. government to purchase assets and equity from financial institutions to address the subprime mortgage crisis. As of October 2010 $551 billion, has been spent on 836 companies and 13 programs. $80 billion was spent in the non-financial sector, with money going to auto companies such as GM.

Of the $245 billion invested in U.S. banks, $207 billion has been paid back as of October 2010. In addition, $39 billion in interest has been paid. There is still $305 billion outstanding, 55.3% of the total. See Pro Publica for the latest State of the Bailout.

The purpose of the table below is for citizens to see which of their representatives and senators voted for the bailout. Only those who voted Aye are listed. For the majority of voters who were opposed to the bailout, this is an opportunity to communicate to their elected officials how they feel via the ballot box.

In the Update column I track when the politician leaves office, by choice or otherwise. Their names are then crossed out, good riddance. All columns are sortable, let me know of corrections and updates. Note that many of the politicians marked as Resigned took up posts within the Obama administration. Table last updated 8 November 2010.
