      "pay American taxes" -- what a knee-slapper!

          Number of offshore tax havens in 2010?  39.

          In 2010, Goldman Sachs operated 39 subsidiaries in offshore tax haven countries.

          Amount of federal income taxes Goldman Sachs would have owed if offshore tax
          havens were eliminated?  $2.7 billion.

          Think they stopped using offshore tax havens between '10 and '13?
