Obviously this Bill wont go anywhere. Its just an election year publicity stunt. Typical class warfare/divide and conquer BS.
Government always has one "solution", go after or blame someone else.
If they're "so worried" about the average American (which they're obviously not), they should immediately cut spending and lower our taxes so we keep
more of the money that we EARN.
They should also dismantle the Federal Reserve which, with government, is responsible for destroying the purchasing power of our dollar. This way we
would be able to buy a lot MORE with LESS money. This is the real reason for the destruction of the middle class.
A serf actually paid LESS in taxes, about 10%. Between the federal government, state government, social insecurity, property taxes, gasoline tax,
sales tax (you get the idea), we are forced to give over 50% of our income to the State...
I agree that these CEO salaries are very high, but these are for-profit corporations. Thats why they exist, to make money and they should be free to
choose how they want to spend that money.
Shareholders are the ones who should demand changes to compensation. They actually have the ability to call a vote.
Why they dont do it is beyond me. I guess they dont know?
Maybe thats where government can get involved. Use the power of the pulpit to educate people on their investor rights.
