Corporate Payday

A little less than the previous twelve months.

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger earned $44.9 million in 2015, according to public documents.
While that sounds like a lot, the executive’s pay, which was disclosed in an SEC filing on Wednesday, was down from the $46.5 million from the previous year. ...

I have no problem with Mr. Iger and other corporate chieftans getting a fat paycheck. The "magic of the marketplace!" ... "The glories of capitalism!" and all that.

But I have a large problem with the high rollers paying less in taxes than I do. Income is income is income.

Steve, here's a Ted-X style (cheaply "Animated" of course) "video explanation" of the levels of taxation that'll make you wanna grind your teeth. Don't worry though, "there are some sane people in this world too".
