Obama is claiming to make an attempt to control CEO payroll and bonus's. How can that happen?

I'm listening to the local radio and the ad was Obama claiming (some) CEO's make more in ten minutes than most make all year and he will address this issue. I am with him in the thought but how can that possibly be controlled? Is this just a - tell what they want to hear speech?
Wonderer:

That is a scary proposition. Do you really want the Federal Government to control how much you make at a job? That is basically what this boils down too. Giving the Government control over wages. While the initial concept sounds good, I think it is dangerous to give someone else control of how much a person can earn.

Fire:

Not at all. I was not supprised when he made the claim.

Sandra:

Federal employees have an scale for their salaries, but to try to govern salaries in private enterprises, ii wont work.
Easy ex. teachers in public schools make 45 thou. a year same teacher same credential in a private school 65-70 thou. and the government can't control what the private school pays.

Russ:

It already is being controlled to an extent. While payroll expense is deductible, no CEO salary over $1 million can be deducted by corporations. Bonuses are also not deductible in the same manner.
This kind of talk is playing to the crowd, and does not mean very much.

Fire:

Yes he is playing the crowd. Thanks.

Othman:

Thank you russ, I was unaware of that information. Puts a much likelier spin on the statement.

Othman:

That's absurd. What a CEO makes is the company's business. Not the government's.

Fire:

Exactly

Sadiemae:

I know he is for raising taxes on the upper 1%. You sure the ad wasn't in regards to that? Don't know otherwise.

Fire:

That may be his plan but it sure sounded as if he was going to nail them to the wall.

Sadiemae:

Hate to sound complacent, but it doesnt apply to me. They will still be better off finacially than the other 99% of us. If the money goes towards the deficit or education then I'm all for it.

Sandra:

and guess where all those taxes are going to end up.
in more welfare programs for the lazy leaches that don't do anything but put their hands out and say "gi'me gi'me"

Sadiemae:

well I did say that "If the money goes towards the deficit or education then I'm all for it". Where the money will actually go is anybodies guess at this point. I honestly don't think CEO's have anything to worry about. It will never happen.

Capt. Morgan:

Told you he was stupid.

Sadiemae:

Why did we ever doubt you? lol

Sandra:

All he can do is "attempt", don't think it will fly. words, words, and more words.

Sadiemae:

Welcome to Politics. You must be new to this?

Sandra:

To QnA? not really, but I tried to mellow my comments, kind of difficult when politics and religion are the subjects. Nice to meet you in the virtual world or ciber space.

Sadiemae:

I hear you. I have really mellowed out with the comments as well.
Nice to meet you as well. See you around Cyber space.
