    They can’t have all 19 pass so they’ll slam the regionals and continue the concentration of power in the mostly reckless too-bi-to-fail banks

    I’ll second rktbrkr- it’s sounds like a fucking setup- if all the “usual suspects” pass- then we will know the fix is in

    This is a morale booster, the TARP is working great, just need one more round as “insurance”.

    Real stress tests were probably run concurrently in secret, “Jeezus, BAC’s nearly as bad as CITI and so is WFC! We need to tell the public everything is fine and keep feeding them cash and see what happens”
