hell - why not limit pay for bureaucrats and poloticians. I say they shouldn't make more than double the poverty level.

I was watching Cavuto the other night, right after they appointed this "pay czar".

His stance was if he is going to limit pay and regulate what they do, he needs to start in Congress. These people have spent trillions of dollars with no regard to what is going to happen to the American economy. If a CEO ran his business the way these people have run our economy, they would have been fired decades ago!

If you are going to start limiting pay and taking away priviledges, start at home. How long do you suppose he would last?

No! Much as I despise the union shills, I don't want government to decide what anybody makes. Even the people I mistrust and dislike. :mad:

How about when a Senator or Congressman gets his bank account frozen at whatever is in the bank and he is not a penny richer when he gets out except for his Congressional salary.
