The headline of this piece is “Deposit Plan Will Cost Banks More.”
Is there any evidence in the text that this is true? The closest I can find is:
After forgoing premiums from 1996 to 2006, the agency must now turn to struggling banks and ask them to pay more, putting more pressure on the industry. If a large number of banks fail, the F.D.I.C. may have to turn to the Treasury for more money, forcing taxpayers to foot the bill.
“It’s unfortunate that we didn’t have more time to build up the fund in the good times,” said Sheila C. Bair, the F.D.I.C. chairwoman, in an interview Wednesday. “It is what is, and we are dealing with the situation.”
