    We see how sick American capitalism can be, with out of control executive pay and the recent
    executive bonus fiasco.
    President Obama has the right idea, by requiring companies that receive Federal bailout funds
    to have limitations on executive pay.
    America has become the laughing stock of the world now with our economy in shambles, and CEO's still giving themselves huge pay increases, and bonuses. We must set an example for the rest of the world.

    We've had capitalism? since when!? Last I checked, when government was involved in economics, it was called socialism.

    Not that I think we should be in the business of bailing people out, but I'll let you know when I want a fascist government the power to tell me how much I should make.

    Nothing about the bailouts represented Capitalism in the least. The executive pay and bonuses were only allowed because the government gave these companies money. If they had been allowed to fail it wouldn't have happened.

    DEAD WRONG Commie! We should only make the executive pay and bonus limits should only be placed on bailout accepting companies while they are accepting the bailout

    White men in control, are always oblivious to the common man and his situation. Greed is not good.
    White males dominate on Wall Street, and in Government. Their system of American capitalism, is being forced to accept a New World Order form of economics, and government. These can be only
    the growing pains to that transition.We must prepare to do Battle with the New World ordersits,to which
    Barack Obama , and Bill Clinton are all a part of,or accept what ever they deliver to us.
