Summary

 Alexi Giannoulias supports the 2009 Stimulus plan, but does not comment on the TARP legislation. He has stated that the problems which led to the need for TARP should be addressed by ending too big to fail with safety systems such as company funded bankruptcy management plans with the equivalent of a "living will" for companies, more careful regulation of non-bank lending entities, reign in the derivatives market, and cut down on banks taking advantage of consumers. He supports efforts to reclaim bonus money from TARP recipients.
