WASHINGTON The government insurance fund that protects more than $4.5 trillion in U.S. bank deposits fell to just $10.4 billion at the end of June, as the banking industry continues to struggle with souring loans.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. fund is at its lowest level since mid-1993, during the savings-and-loan crisis. That makes it likely that the government will have to charge banks another special fee to recapitalize its reserves. Officials could also consider borrowing up to $100 billion from the Treasury Department, but they have avoided this option so far.

There is probably a taxpayer-backed line-of-credit-with-the -Treasury present to save the day....maybe even $500 billion just lying around.
Biden, your Vice President, says “Spend, spend, spend to prosperity!”
Just spend it all and it will come back to you—that’s the way to prosperity per Biden. It’s magical like that.
June? So this was even before Colonial went under.
Before both Colonial *and* Guaranty failed...yes.
Is that Frank Raines?!?!
Big tree slaughter coming.
‘Looter Guy’ sure gets around! ;)
I am beginning to think the “green shoots” I keep hearing about are gangrene.
Taking a page out of the Ronald Reagan against Jimmy Carter playbook, the GOP needs to adopt this slogan.

Awesome... I like that alot :)
CRANK UP THE PRESSES! Emergency money needed fast!
Rough numbers from the FDIC press releases show expected cost to the fund:
$7,121,800,000 for August 2009
$3,155,600,000 for July 2009
$10,277,400,000 in estimates since the fund was said to shrink to 10.4B at the end of June. Still one FDIC Friday left in August. Could this be correct that they may have to fall back on the Treasury this soon?
Thanks for the ping.
Before Colonial and State Bank of Sarasota...
