29. Have you even bothered to read it?
After the government sells the assets down the road, the bill authorizes the president to come up with a way to recoup the losses from Wall St, like surcharges on all stock transactions.

Mind you the bill isn't final, but its not going to cost the taxpayers $700 billion dollars, no where near that amount.
