"GM's low stock price has prevented the Treasury from exiting the automaker. It still holds 500 million shares of stock in the company as part of its $49.5 billion bailout, or a 32 percent stake.

It needs about $53 a share in order to break even on its GM bailout. At current prices, it would lose $17.25 billion on the bailout."

If, as the article says, we are down to a 32% stake in GM, that means that we've already taken a nice profit, since we started out with a 61% share and the stock has had a nice run with prices at higher than original issue. So if you if you just look at what is left, it looks bad, but if you look at the bigger picture, it's not so bad.

If we did what Romney wanted and sold out the rest fast, that size sale would drive down the stock price which wouldn't be good for us.
