I have responded to IO"s in post#5967. It is an up to date,2012, that is researched by a professional research company. It is accurate and concise. It list the top 20 of CEO income leaders.
Who even doubted it? I think that IO's research information on CEO salaries being "accurate and concise"... was determined yesterday.

Now just like last time, when Right Wingers accused me of being "full of it" when I pointed out medical insurance company executives received up to a BILLION DOLLARS,
I provided the documentation demonstrating that, as usual, I was accurate, and the Right Wingers are clueless.
Now, having established my credibility hundreds of times, if I go to the trouble of providing numerous sources for your edification-
we know you're too busy enjoying those Socialist Security and Medicare Benefits,
will you admit I am the informed source and you're a blowhard, too lazy to do your own research ?

That is a lot of money but the stockholders must think that they are worth it. These guys usually make the company at least ten times more than their salary in profit for the company. Funny no one says anything about these sports stars raking in all the money that they do. They get all this outlandish money and fame for doing something they love to do. Wow! What a deal.
I think it is called capitalism. If they do a great job and make the company enough money they are rewarded.
I don't hear people screaming and protesting to cut these sports hero's salary to cut ticket prices to the games. Sounds like a double standard to me.
And don't forget movie actors who may have as their initial salary anywhere from $10-$30 million, but who also often put in participation percentages in their contracts, thus increasing their earnings for ONE movie up to as much as $100 million.(Keanu Reeves in the Matrix sequels top of the list). But no, no one ever comments on how that jacks up movie theater prices for the "little people."

I'm not so sure of that. If you will go back to my up to date 2012 report on CEO salaries POST #5967, you will probably change your mind. I.O. gave a lot of old information.

You must be a CEO and feel much better when defending yourself and others. A lousy attempt, I must add. I know your kind. I've worked with CEOs who remind us all of those greedy, immoral Capitol Hill takers. No different. Sit in their executive office easy chairs, never thinking twice about the little man, the backbone and true substance of these corporations. The wealthier they become, the less connected they are to "real workers" ... we know your kind. We know ALL about their priorities- upside down, backwards and screwed up.

An important difference between a European system and the US system is physicians' salaries. In France, for instance, which is reportedly the best system in the world and not a singlepayer, physicians earn an average salary of about $55,000 per year. American physicians earn around $150,000 per year. One argument that many use to explain this is that medical school is free in France. While this may raise some eyebrows, it shouldn't raise them too highly. Several American doctors go to medical school at little to no cost by agreeing to work in areas that are deemed "under served" for a specified period of time, usually four years. Certainly, the term "under served" implies isolated, rural areas, but such an interpretation isn't necessarily correct. For example, several physicians who choose this option end up working at hospitals in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Moreover, many begin with great salaries, close to the American average for physicians. While some would rather incur debt and shoot for a higher initial salary, say $225 per year, those who choose the "under served area" route realize that in a short time they will be able to shoot for a higher salary.

Needless to say, while many American students begin with a pre-med major, most French students do not. The earning potential for a French physican causes several to go in other directions. It is logical to conclude that the same could be said for American students should the salaries of physicians ever become drastically lower.

A second major issue is malpractice insurance. Given that most policies are in the area of $30,000, if not higher, a French physician wouldn't be able to afford this necessity. How, then, do they survive in France? Malpractice cases do not go before juries nor enter the legal system. They appear before a board that determines whether malpractice has occurred, and payment is drawn from a fund set aside by the government. This suggests that tort reform would help.

These are two areas in which many argue that the French system outdoes the American, but neither system, nor singlepayer systems such as those in Britain, Spain, and Canada, can eliminate the increasing costs of medical procedures and the equipment needed to perform them. Also, nothing will change the realities that these countries have aging populations, governments with limited means to fund healthcare initiatives, and people who want everything possible done to preserve their health in times of grave illness.

I can't help but see any plan as utlimately unable to compete with rising costs. Will not the number of people with pre-existing conditions and those who buy insurance under PPACA only when they are diagnosed with a serious condition eventually drive private insurance providers out of business, leaving the government as the sole provider? How can a cash-strapped government foot such a bill? It cannot. It has been tried in this country in the form of TENNCARE in Tennessee when Clinton considered a singlepayer system in the 1990s. Most would say that this iniative has been a failure, and all admit that the state was on the brink of bankruptcy before the plan was drastically cut.

I don't believe that we should equate "access to affordable health insurance" and "access to healthcare."

Thanks for the reference. I went back and read it. Seems I was wrong about IO's batting average.

IO loses his batting average, it is now .000, he just can't win for losing.
IO, just make a big letter L with your thumb and index finger, place it on your forehead and look in the mirror. Your crowing is getting old. LMAO

Yeah, I have a name and it is BigDave1.
You have to learn to take the good with the bad. If you are looking for a job and you are offered two of them by two different employers and one wants to pay you $28,000 a year and the other one wants to pay you $80,000 a year, which one would you take? That is capitalism.
If you want to be so far and square with everything and make everything fair then both employers should pay the same $28,000. Everybody would make the same salary. That is called communism.
You seem pretty smart to me and your IQ is not 65, so I assume you would take the $80,000 a year job.
Nothing perfect or fair about everything that goes on with capitalism. Although it might seem fair especially to you to make the $80,000 a year, as you would think that you were worth it. The $28,000 a year job offer could be an insult to you. We have a clear choice. Communism or Capitalism. I think you believe in capitalism. Am I right?

What got my attention first was the bias right wing term "Obamacare Watch". This should ring a bell in you deaf ears if you weren't so right wing bias yourself. To make it better, it was highlited in RED.....in other works a "warning". Another give away is at the bottem where is says "Congressional Commitee" which everybody knows the Congress right now is for far out in the right wing field they are rediculas. I was not interested in reading the artical and rulled it "right wing garbage"...Good try but these scare tactics don't work any longer with most American people. That's why they ar losing elections and power. Keep trying though because I love correcting you goof balls.
Well, certainly those things got your attention, but you are being reckless by not paying attention to ALL of the evidence and information that is out there. Of all the libs I know, YOU are the most programmed in regard to Obamacare. You speak in terms of "most Americans", etc. Well, take a look at how MOST Americans felt (feel) about Obamacare. Your hero passed it ANYWAY. It sounded good right at first, but the more info that came out about Obamacare, the more people started getting concerned. If you think you are immune to the pitfalls of Obamacare, then as you so eloquently put it......"sit back and enjoy the ride". It's going to be bumpy. There is no help for you. You are just going to have to live it. Consider yourself warned.

My thoughts exactly... he's out fundraising with the Californian attorney general, he's obviously smitten with this woman. He could've saved all the slobbery sweetness for behind the scenes, another poke at Michelle. M. Obama gave an imterview I'm which she seemed very preoccupied, calling herself a single mother. Then, after realizing her mistake, quickly covers for him. How unusual!... All the while the Korean Peninsula sees a massive military build up, he's MIA as he jets out for fundraising, leaving Kerry & Hagel in charge. Reminds me of Benghazi... I read that Jung Un is at a "can't back down" moment without risk of losing power & respect amongst his military leaders. These latest sanctions are hitting the country hard and finally reaching his Army. A large portion of his Army is now rationing meals. This will definitley spark a conflict. He wants to retain power, so we can expect a missile or 2 to fly.
Just hope America is ready, and takes this little madman out! I'm praying all our troops and families are spared. This seems like a highly volatile crisis about to explode.
Obama, you're needed in the Situation Room, along with your top advisers, Hagel, & Kerry- not out fundraising and goo-gooing over Ms. Harris.
Hey! Just hand Obama a gun. He'll take him out. Afterall, he killed Bin Laden, don't 'cha know.

I did say that you must take the good with the bad. It does correlate with the job market no matter what it is. The most qualified and brightest will always be paid more than the other people and why shouldn't they?
You are the one that is dreaming. You think that because you are dealing with peoples health that prices should be regulated. Many people have a difficult time affording groceries. Should all grocery stores sell their products on a no profit or at cost basis? Then there would be no grocery stores would there? Then where would the masses get their food from?
There are choices to be made. You must choose the ones that make some logical sense.
BTW did you take the $28,000 a year job? lol
