    and his number for GS CEO is about right.
    A good elaboration of income disparity for those who really don't grasp 'million'.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    As I've expressed here Numerous times in the last few months..
    The Minimum wage is under asssault by not just 'Free Trade' (and aggravated by the Fake Yuan exchange rate), but 11 Million illegals HERE also driving down the Real Free Market wage.

    I don't see how that effects his ability to do - well - anything.
    he was planning apparently on taking out a second mortgage to pay for his daughters' college. dumb.

    wow. that is awesome. he is actually able to leverage his experience into being that much more productive.

    well, or not - after all, having the Obama Administration in your pocket is a nice plus.

    wow, the protestors must be really mad at (say) Tim Geithner, eh?
