Should Banks That Issued Government-Covered Debt be Allowed to Repay TARP Capital??

This AM I was on CNBC discussing the banks with Paul Miller of FBR.  Paul is a first rate analysts, IMHO.

I suggested that the big banks should not be allowed to repay TARP equity to long as the government is guaranteeing their debt. That is, if a bank wants to repay TARP capital, they must end the use of debt guarantees AND be able to refinance all guaranteed debt before the TARP capital is repaid.  Link below:

We will develop this further.  Look forward to your comments.
