Another absolute must-read from Matt Taibbi: $23.7 trillion Wall Street bailout

Nothing whips up my populist outrage more effectively than a new Matt Taibbi article!

His entire article is great, so I won’t even try to cut-and-paste highlights. But this sentence summarizes his key point:

Please read.

Oh, wait. Here’s a highlight:

Neil Barofsky, the inspector general charged with overseeing TARP, estimates that the total cost of the Wall Street bailouts could eventually reach $23.7 trillion.
