Bloomberg News and the New York Times have documented nearly $13 trillion dollars given or promised by the Federal Reserve and the government since the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in September 2008.
While this $13 trillion includes TARP money and some recovery money, there is much more in a variety of Federal Reserve programs where we don't know which banks and corporations have gotten money and how much.
Because it is public money being spent, the public has a right to understand the specific details of where that money has been spent.
