        A million dollars, I have yet to meet an individual worth 1/4 that amount, including me. Note: I exclude my wife from that statement. I have no way of calculating her worth to me or our family. What's hers is hers and what's mine is hers and that is fine by me.

        Oh Rah! The military is once again a model for this. A 4 star General with over 30yrs in the organization only makes 11.13 times the salary of an E1 Enlisted person with less than 2 years in the organization. That equates to a CEO making $278,250 based on a new employee salary of $25,000. So paying a CEO 4X what a 4 star General is allowed to make, seems crazy to a retired military guy. Especially when you consider contribution to society and organizational responsibility. Generals are also responsible for the moral, health and welfare of their people vice just maximizing shareholder value. The best model for socialism that works is the US Military. So...hell yeah, lets cap individual compensation or at least tax compensation over $1million at 50% for a start.

        Moderation is the principle. When there is excess riches is not good, and excess poverty, the destruction of human potential. The purpose of Government is to create reasonable limits. Therefore, there should be limits to income so that the poor many can feed, house, educate, and keep his family healthy. The rich man to his beautiful house. But not so rich as to deprive the poor of their needs. This is moderation. To limit extreme wealth and poverty. This is not Socialism, where everyone is supposed to get the same pay. That destroys incentive to work hard and become successful.

        What do the superwealthy owe you?? If you stop people from getting superwealthy then the only people that will remain in power are the people that are already superwealthy which means, that no new voices will be heard. Why do you not understand that? So in closing way to think about what you are claiming before you claim that's the answer. Outside of the moral issues with taking someone elses belongings and give them nothing in return, there are some serious financial consequences penalizing the success of your bosses who provide your jobs is just stupid.

        The bonuses in the millions/billions paid the "too big to fail" bank executives or talent because are gaming the system or sitting in a room with huge network of super computers is outrageous. And those banks or corporations who not investing trillions into the American society.

        A Plutocracy micro-managed by oligarchs is stifling true innovation, research and development, science and math, education and promoting a class war against working people, women and youth.

        The super wealthy need to pay back. How about a max on personal wealth; say 10 million? All else gets paid into a national recovery fund to recapitalize our basic industries and form non-profit insurance administration

        Totally. Considering it is possible to live off the interest of 1 Million dollars, an annual salary cap is completely reasonable.
