    Considering it was only extended (originally) to December 31st 2012 I'd like to know when they extended it to March 2013?

    Save? The banks were paying the state for the privilege.

    Relax ladies, it's just more spin;

    "no new liabilities"

    It's just not being extended, oh great,

    After everyone has been repaid,

    Yippee

    All going towards the normalisation of things fiscal. Can only be good news.
