Goldman Sachs to Repay TARP Funds Early

While the President's proposal to cap executive comp at $500,000 a year is, IMHO, a seriously misguided attempt to address the financial crisis, it may have some ancillary benefits. Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) Chief Financial Officer
David Viniar said the bank is keen to avoid restrictions it agreed to
after receiving funds from the U.S. government late last year and it is
looking to pay the money back as soon as possible.

That's great. Give the American taxpayer back his money, and figure out how to get out of your financial mess on your own. Sounds good to me.
