Do you never want to see yourselves making what you would consider "too much"?

Now I probably don't have the earning potential to drop a few million in the bank per year, but I do, to make 3-400K.....Is that too much?

Should I have a cap on what I am able to make?

I don't think I would ever let myself get in a situation where I was getting paid 10x what I am worth.

And if my decisions lost the company millions, I would be fired. Immediately.

Too bad that's not true of non-elected government employees. Even though I understand the reasons why; doesn't mean I have to agree...

So some of you do want to be told how much you can make, say even if you open your own business?

Once again, there is NOTHING MENTIONED having to do with "capping" pay. Just ways to keep a balance between out of control senior execs pay and the publics frustration over it using shareholder influence and better transparency in accounting.

But keep on thinking that Obama is personally going to tell the CEO on McDonalds how much he can make if thats the depth of our ability to understand....

Keep thinking it's out of the realm of possibility ... mark my word, he'll try to come close.
