"Fox Biz reports that Ken Feinberg, as one of his last ineffectual actions during his soon to be forgotten tenure, will announce on Friday the clawback of various bonuses paid during the 2008 year of ubiquitous bail outs. Since every single bank received some form of assistance in 2008, and many still benefit from the ridiculously low rates on the FDIC-backed TLGP debt (which only has 1.5 years before it matures), it is unclear which banks will be the target of this last attempt to recover some taxpayer money out of the TBTF. Also, since these same banks run the country via their Federal Reserve lobby, it is unclear if and to what extent the Goldmans of the world will agree to this action."
