Good question. I had thought the total AIG bailout was 182 Bil, and that total amount isn’t listed. But, I think that part of the AIG amount came from TARP and and a few prior to that, in the billions.

TARP funds were used for the GM and Chrysler bailouts. I believe TARP differed from stimulus in that TARP was supposed to be paid back. Still waiting GM...

This looks like TARP was part of the stimulus.
