This totes adorbs Think Progress headline caught my eye: Senators Seek To End Taxpayer Subsidy For Exorbitant CEO Pay:

With executive compensation at record highs, two senators are trying to end a government subsidy of performance-driven executive pay schemes that cost taxpayers $5 billion per year. Sens. Jack Reed (D-RI) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) proposed a bill Friday that would limit the amount of performance-based pay that can be written off as a tax deduction and bring in $50 billion in tax revenue over a decade.

Isn't it presh how Reed and Blumenthal think Republicans would ever pass any bill ever that would pull support from their ritzy CEO BFFs? Especially one called the Stop Subsidizing Multimillion Corporate Bonuses Act.

But hey, at least they're trying. And who knows? Stranger things have happened...

If you don't want to watch the whole thing, skip to about 4:30. I would like just 5 minutes in a dark alley with that sniveling excuse for man flesh. Via.
