Listen, nobody pays their taxes anymore, except for suckers, so this really isn't that big a deal. Some Senator's going to come out today or over the weekend and say he had a hand in telling at least 13 companies that received TARP money that they should just sign on the dotted line of the contract stating they had no unpaid taxes, even if they did, to, you know, expedite things. Then Treasury Secretary Geithner's going to say, "No, no, Senator [take your pick], I'm not going to let you take the fall on this one, I was behind it," and obviously no one will argue with that, and we'll get on, business as us-u-al. Ship shape.
