News Headlines (http://www.cnbc.com/id/37732312 - broken link)

"More than 90 U.S. banks and thrifts missed making a May 17 payment to the U.S. government under its main bank bailout program, signaling a rising number of lenders are struggling to meet their obligations."

That's our money folks. The banks are not paying back the money WE loaned them.
Fort 23 of those 90 it was their first missed payment. For the rest it was AT LEAST their second missed payment.
