Check the math

The stock market spiked upwards today, mainly on news that Wells Fargo announced an unexpected $3 Billion dollar profit.

‘Unexpected’ is the operative word: After deducting their $25 Billion “loan” from TARP II that to this observer actually is more like a $22 Billion loss.

Go figure.

Shouldn’t they be thinking about paying back that taxpayer money now?
