We should Sequester all the CEO's pay in America!! 10% across the board to keep it fair. The government would be able to pay off of the national debt according to my calculations. Think of all the money that would be saved in interest payments alone. Without any debt the corporate tax and capital gains rates could be lowered to zero and companies could start hiring again. The economy would turn around quick. Lets face it, no CEO would be forced to eat dog food or go without heat,maybe they might have to give up a golf game or two at the most. Read about the "Dollar-A-Year-Men" during WWI,WWII and the Korean War. CEO's stepped up to the plate in the past when their country needed them. Why don't the current CEO's do the same?
That is right. We need to bring back the 70% tax rate just to address this greed. The middle class income has either dropped or remained stagnant, and benefit reductions the last decade, while CEO pay surges.
