That's one of those articles that you read and say,"so what?"

So the CEO got more salary that the company paid in taxes? Is there supposed to be some correlation there? Why didn't they compare the taxes that the CEO paid to the taxes that the company paid?

What about the union bosses? Why didn't they compare those salaries to the taxes paid by the unions?

Why didn't they say how much time and money was wasted to do such a useless study?

One of the things most people need to learn is most liberal blogs are either filled with lies or distortions. I personally liked this:

There should be... I'd like to see law that sets a minimum tax at ten percent over the pay of the CEO, and if that would make the company unprofitable, then the CEOs pay and minimum tax reduces until the equalised amounts are under the unprofitable level. If that turns out to be nothing, oh well...

And that helps who and in what way? Why should I care what a company pays the CEO? Why should we allow Government to intrude on private business and tell them what to pay the CEO? How do you even justify such action? You are okay with all that, are you okay with MLB paying players $20 million a year to play baseball?

For that you would have to understand irony and humor. The OP's article was off 9,200%. 60% Bwah, not even noticeable wouldn't you say?
