    I heard the fuller version yesterday. His comment is followed by a bunch of snarky laughter from the toadies in the audience. Disgraceful.

    Of course not.

    "Enough money" is subjective. His Cronies deserve a lot, the rest of us much less.

    I wonder how much higher than the 5+ million he made last year, that "certain point" is.

    I mean for me, $5 Million is plenty in ten years, but he made it in one. I wonder where he draws the line regarding CEO worth?

    Protecting the corprations from the people.

    Yeah you guys have found a real winner of an Issue here.

    I think you need to work harder though.

    You need to find all the RINOS and kick them out of the party.

    You need to find a way to piss off other people besides just the latinos and blacks.

    Cant you figure out how to piss off Asians?

    No surprise here to find out you support Obama on this one. Bet you wouldn't support Obama on this one though if he said that people doing your job should only make $25k per year though.

    (Disclaimer: the above presumes you have a job)

    The proper definition of "enough" is personal to the individual. When the marginal income from working is no longer worth, then "enough".

    Obama's policies are forcing more and more of the productive, entrepreneurial class to that point; which is why private sector job creation is virtually nil.

    You don't work and you support wealth re-distribution? Never would've guessed.
