I erased most of your opinions and crystal ball gazens, hope you don’t mind.
What is wrong with asking someone that makes TEN TIMES THEIR salary in so-called bonus/stock options, whatever you call it, to pay more than the 15% capitol gains tax?
For instance; In 2010 Average CEO Pay at S&P 500 Companies . Salary= $1,093,989 paying the same tax rate as you and I on it.
Bonus/ stock options/whatever they could worm in and tax at the capitol gains rate of 15%…. $11,358,445.
If the poor rich dude paid the full The full Monty of SS,s $106000 and change ,it would be paid in full in around one day and six hours.But of course he pays nothing on it as he has already paid it on his…coff,coff,salary.
