Say I am a brilliant business guy... suspend your sense of disbelief for a moment, OK?
So, I am a brilliant business guy. Lots of companies want me to work for them. I can command a high salary, because I am worth it. Because I am so brilliant I can lead one of the bailed out companies out of the woods, BUT I have two job offers. One from a company that will pay me 1.5 million plus another 2 million in bonus if I do a good job. The bailed out company can only pay me $500K, and will take more effort on my part to get the job done. Which one do you think I would choose to work for? Which one would you choose to work for?
The simple truth is that President Obama has just limited the already failed, bailed out business ability to resurrect themselves. Why? Because he thinks executives make too much money. Check that... As he is now the President, it is THE GOVERNMENT interfering in a private contract between two private parties... I think I read something somewhere that said that the state could not do that... I have to think hard... HUMMMMMMMMM... Where the heck was that... Oh yeah!!
The Fifth Amendment, not just for testifying against yourself!
No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law
But wait there's MORE!! It is said AGAIN in the Fourteenth Amendment:
nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law
So we have the State saying that a person can only make a specific amount of money, and no more. Sounds a lot like depriving a person of property does it not?
