So you, in a roundabout way, are just simply stating, "Take the rich people’s money" that will fix all our problems. Besides the moral
implications of that, it won’t work. It would be a drop in a bucket to how much our current president has added to the national debt. And to
actually think that you believe this is a new idea or concept is laughable! You don’t think other governments and nations have attempted this
before. It doesn’t work. Please try to accept that. If you can’t. Ask 19th and 20th century Russia how that worked out for them. They’re still
recovering from it today.
What entitles the rest of Americans to the Executives salary? If that is how they allocate their funds, then so be it. If the business fails, because
of poor money management, then this leads way for new business in the place of that one. Hence free enterprise and capitalism. The best man wins.
Side note: The American worker is mostly overpaid. The American work is not a good deal. Meaning the cost effectiveness of what you pay into it and
what you get in return. You can thank the Unions for this. The American worker is like buying a 1995 ford escort for the price of a 2011 BMW. It’s
not a good deal. You will get ripped off. With all the increase in min wage, benefits holiday time, sick leave, etc. Not a lot of other countries do
this, and the ones that do are much like Greece. You can see how well they are doing. History speaks for itself.
