Two final banks — Citigroup and Wells Fargo — announced today they will repay the billions of dollars they received in bailout money. Meanwhile, President Obama met at the White House with many of the nation's leading financial executives.  He gave a firm reminder of the taxpayer support that helped keep them afloat and urged increased lending to help jumpstart the economy. And in this bonus season, Obama used a baseball analogy, comparing the CEOs to "overpaid pitchers on a team doing poorly." So tonight, we ask: Will President Obama's tough talk achieve results? Or will it be more of the same from Wall Street? Tell us what you think. You can follow "Nightline" anytime on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Nightline.
