WASHINGTON (AP) -- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the Obama administration doesn't want to place caps on executives' pay - even though it believes excessive compensation led to risk-taking that contributed to the financial crisis.


So when you find a problem you are not supposed to fix it? This goes to prove once again who is really in control of our world. How do they expect to fix or prevent futures problems when they are not will to fix the breaks in the chain when they find them?
