President Barack Obama is set to announce today a proposal to assess a fee on large financial institutions to recoup money lost from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. The "financial crisis responsibility fee" would target financial institutions with more than $50 billion in assets, an administration official said. The fee would take effect after June 30, and it is estimated the assessment would raise $90 billion over 10 years, per the administration official.
