155. Ok, I'll concede there is more to the picture
The OP is about the banking industry, however, and that is pretty much covered by the TARP program where the accounting is good and the sums have been paid back.

The sourcewatch run-down is a good counter to that, I have to admit. As it notes, bailout loans to the insurance industry are still outstanding, and there are still very large problems with Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac which may or may not blow up on us and cost fortunes...the reform bill of 2010 did steer clear of those as well, perhaps no a solvable problem at the moment.
