Your tax dollars at work

Keep your blood pressure medication close by, grif.
Staff at Goldman Sachs staff [sic] can look forward to the biggest bonus payouts in the firm's 140-year history after a spectacular first half of the year, sparking concern that the big investment banks which survived the credit crunch will derail financial regulation reforms.
