An angry U.S. senator introduced legislation Friday to cap compensation for employees of any company that accepts federal bailout money. Under the terms of a bill introduced by Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, no employee would be allowed to make more than the president of the United States.Anyone who says they didn't see this coming - was too busy looking for the inaugural unicorns.
Prior to the 'Bailout', the very IDEA that government would be allowed to introduce legislation dictating what a company could pay its employees would have been met with gasps of horror from anyone not already on the welfare rolls.
Hey guys, what did you think you were selling?
Let me give you a hint : "Freedom"
...hope you got a good price.
Gov't gives money to Business... Gov't takes control of Business... Gov't tells Business what pay is "Fair"...
Sounds familiar... like something I might have said Before
