    Sure, by all means pull the plug but it's just a drop in the bucket. CEO pay is only a symptom of a far greater problem. Unless we return to a progressive tax code similar to that in place after WWII under which the middle class flourished, you can start carving the tombstone for the middle class - It's DOA. Say Hello to the United States of Brazil.

    It's really that simple. Tinkering with the rest is fiddling while Rome burns.
