How ironic that liberals demand that CEOs and other high income earning corporate officials take smaller salaries. What is funny about it is that these very same liberals want the CEO's to pay more taxes, but by forcing lower earned income, taxes for those same executives are lower.
Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs salary was $1.00 which means his compensation will be through his Apple stock prices which have skyrocketed. He receives stock options and other benefits, but those benefits can be taken in ways that reduce and delay his tax liabilities. He can sell stock for his income, and use stocks not applicable to short-term capital gains taxes where the tax costs are lower than on earned-income.
Once again, liberal's effort to steal from executives, even a way-out liberal like Jobs, have the opposite effect that they seek. And, once again…it's typical liberalism doing the opposite of its intentions. One would think that after 60 years of back-firing liberalism, they'd get a clue. But I'm not going to hold my breath.
