Just think of all the homes in foreclosure that could be saved...but instead, let's think about all the homeowners losing those same homes because of the slimy, sneakly, lowlife crooks running these companies..they should all be taken to court and made to cough-up all the "extra" millions of dollars they have been given during the time period when all these companies were going "under".....typical big business which is protected by "big" government.....are there any poor people running this country?

also, let's not forget that they have reasons why they collected all their millions. ask yourself why crime, especially robbery, is on the rise.....God help this country because our government isn't...

There is no CEO in america, even of successful companies, that is worth more than $100,000 a year. It's insane and shows that this is not a free enterprise system. If it was, companies would try to minimize exec salaries.

If nothing else, this shows that the executives and boards really don't give a shit about the share holder. This money being paid to the executives is straight out of any NET coming into the company.

Pay them less, more NET profit, more return to the stock holder...
