      I think EVERYONE is upset with the government bailing out the banks and then they get big bonuses...

      Most right wingers not in agreement with this.

      They should have fired every CEO first and thought about bonuses when they made real money and not money from Fed handouts !!

    • Idiot: You missed the whole point of what the person was stating about the CEO making 400 times. Who pays that CEO? It is the consumer that buys the products of the company that the CEO is associated with. Does anyone deserve 94 million to leave the position of CEO of a company? I think not. Should CEO's COO's CFO's get a bonus when the Government had to bail out the Corp.? That's what they are made about.

      When I think things are bad at my work, I glance over at the guy working construction, climbing the pole, etc....and am thankful and usually shut up.

      My family tells me I am lucky.
      No, I understand the process of linking hard work, education, competition, and being productive.

      Thanks, good comments.

      I have known several CEO's....they have unique skills that are in demand in the market place....

      So, no I have no problem with a CEO making 400 times more than the guy on the floor........or Oprah making 10,000 times more than the camera-man....

      Or George Clooney making 10,000 times more than the guy that parks his car.....

      I think U assume a CEO has the same skill set as everyone else. Believe me, the companies I work for get rid of CEO's that don't perform....

      The rich should get SS.....they paid in to it. Unfortunately it is going broke and has to be fixed so yes cut the benefits to the rich more than evryone else.....but cut benefits for everyone...

    • ...said the toothless carnival worker to the one percenter. See, this is just the kind of dumb schitt that makes America such a frustrating place to be. You don't have a pot to pi$$ in, yet you advocate for the few fat cats who take all the $$ and control your destiny, but who wouldn't invite you onto their front lawn. Unless you were there to mow it.

    • As long as the CEO's had a nice day, who cares?

        The left's plan is working.

        Can't discuss results so whip up your base and try and divide the country by financial status.

        The rich are the cause of the problems and bad.......easy to hate the rich.....difficult to join the other half that work and pay taxes....

        So when I hear of the left hating the rich and the CEO's, you can tell that the Obama plan is working with his base.

        Funny to watch as the zom-bies join in lock step...
