The reason an American company may suck is not CEO compensation. Was GM brought down (and bailed out the wrong way) because of CEO pay or exorbitant union benefits?

Oil companies impeded by CEO pay or Obama preventing pipelines and drilling?

Pharma companies held back by CEO pay or FDA overregulation?

The list goes on and on. The “it’s not working” easy answer is a misdirection, just like passing Obamacare because “healthcare isn’t working”.

Maybe the next time we’re losing a war we should try shooting petunias instead of bullets. Restraining CEO pay and giving the money to poor people will destroy our companies.

Let’s stop NFL players from making that kind of money. I guarantee you will see an explosion in construction - of basketball hoops, baseball fields and hockey rinks.
