$17 Billion is almost talking real money. Someone cares.

I find it odd that GE stayed out of the railroad end of it, but that was part of the deal.

Where did they get $17 Billion? I thought the reason they had not been paying any taxes was because they hadn't been making any money? Must be a low intest government (U.S. government) loan.
