    Except that it isn't. Most people are not motivated by money, but if the amount of pay is "wrong" they can be de-motivated. For the wealthy, it isn't just the money, it's the prestige, it's the recognition, it's staying ahead of your peers.

    Let's face it, after a while more income is a waste. If you make so much money you can't possibly spend it in your lifetime then you are probably going to pass it to future generations which will eventually find ways to waste their lives, and the money they inherited.

    I propose if you can't spend it all during your lifetime that you have to give half of it back at your death. We could call it an Estate tax. Oh right, they want to eliminate that, too!

    This President is in a league of his own. The BUSH league!
