Why don’t they set limits on those moron sports players (emphasis on last word) and make-believe “entertainers”? They don’t even do anything useful!

But the Masses always exempt the useless celebrities from their class envy. Amazing.

They’re going to set pay for physicians, so why not?

You cannot pick and choose who the government controls, hoping they’ll control you last.

Sometimes Americans are pretty stupid.

Limits on the top will filter down until those making a good salary now will be at wage determinations set by the government. An accountant at a private firm making 75,000 will be mandated down to 35,000. It’s just a matter of time with Obozo’s plan.

So more and more Americans are swallowing that the Gov’t should have a right to such meddling in the first place?

The question should be just ‘Does the Federal Gov’t have the right to...”

Better question is if citizens should be allowed to set Congressional pay limits, and take back 90% for CONTINUALLY FORKING UP THE COUNTRY!!!

The answer is YES.

They have to stop being in control of their own wages. Just like they say about private companies who had to be bailed out, when government programs are bankrupt - like Social Security, etc etc, ALL OF THEIR PAY needs to be docked just as damn hard as private company people, if that’s how the game is going to be played from now on.

We just tag it to the congressional approval ratings polls and there you go. They never get their full salary because there will never be 100% of people happy with what they are doing. It’s the real world and that’s just how it is.

"This week's poll Should the Obama administration be able to set limits on pay for executives at companies receiving bailout money?"

The American people are setting limits on Hussein Obama and his Administration by rejecting his death care bill and walking away from him in droves. His approval rating is at its lowest yet, and dropping every day.- These kind of polls are bogus anyway, they mean nothing. You get liberals sitting at their computers and voting 100 times, and what does it accomplish for them?

Limits should be set on anyone who takes taxpayer handouts. Such unconstitutional behaviour should not be rewarded.

Tjhe question should be, Does the government have the right to extort money from one citizen and use it to bail out others?.

I would most like to see limits on pay for entertainers, not the CEOs of large and complex business operations. doprah making 90 million for contributing what to society—drivel and stupidity.
