Banks race to repay TARP


While every bank that took money from the government through TARP would like to get the government off their backs, some actually have plans in the works. The only question left is who will be first.

The bank that's made the loudest noises since February is Goldman Sachs (GS). It even raised $5 billion selling common equity shares. The firm got $10 billion in TARP funds. Goldman says it's "highly confident" it will repay funds soon.

What other banks are trying to win the payback race?
