FDIC weighs extraordinary steps to shore up fund - Yahoo! Finance: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is weighing several costly -- and never-before-used -- options as it struggles to shore up the dwindling fund that insures bank deposits.
The agency is considering borrowing billions from healthy banks. Alternatively, it may impose a special fee on the banking industry."
Let me get this right here--instead of the FDIC bailing the banks, the banks are going to bail out the FDIC? At some point doesn't this just amount to nationalization?
