These guys just suck

"This is beyond outrageous. Pregnant women and children with respiratory
problems struggle to get access to scarce doses of the H1N1 vaccine. But
according to NBC News, bankers at Goldman Sachs enjoy a stockpile of 200
doses of the vaccine -- the same as allotted to Lenox Hill Hospital in New

With hospitals, schools and community health clinics in desperate need of
the H1N1 vaccine, it's unconscionable that Wall Street can just cut in
line and secure scarce doses for bankers.

Goldman Sachs received over $1 billion in taxpayer bailouts during the
financial meltdown. But that's not all. It was the single-largest
recipient of taxpayer money in the AIG bailout, receiving almost $13
billion once AIG's positions were unwound.

And now, analysts predict Goldman Sachs could give its bankers as much as
$23 billion in bonuses, while the rest of country struggles through the
jobless "recovery."

NBC chief medical correspondent Nancy Schnyderman has suggested that
Goldman donate its doses to Lenox Hill Hospital. I agree, that's the least
they can do."
