WASHINGTON The Obama administration will call for increased oversight of executive pay at all banks, Wall Street firms and possibly other companies as part of a sweeping plan to overhaul financial regulation, government officials said.
The outlines of the plan are expected to be unveiled this week in preparation for President Obamas first foreign summit meeting in early April.
Increasing oversight of executive pay has been under consideration for some time, but the decision was made in recent days as public fury over bonuses has spilled into the regulatory effort.

Taking on the people of power and influence and especially wealth is one of the dumbest things a politician can due.
I suspect there will be lots of backroom deals done to keep the gravy train rolling.
The Barney Franks’ and Chris Dodds’ of the world don't like having attention called to their piracy and shenanigans. Even the media firewall is having trouble giving them cover, and the Obamists are loyal only to themselves.
It will be interesting to see how many mental midgets are willing to walk the streets and malls for Chairman O, rather than pop their pimples. I would say they might have no better time of it than the traditional door to doors in my neighborhood, although the training video says this is “just the first step” and that they want “a presence in every neighborhood.”
Look what these idiots voted in. I voted for McCain awful as he was, and I know he wouldn't be sending people door to door. The media would cook any Republican that tried that.

The incremental change of Fabian Socialism has turned into the overwhelming change of Totalitarianism.
my god. Timmy the tax cheat can now seize and nationalize US corporations, if the POTUS agrees?
Too bad we don’t have conservative party in the US. If we had, it would be all over this.
