    President Obama: "Now, what we’re doing, I want to be clear, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."

    So, in Obama's great world, who gets to decide when "you've made enough"? I don't think he means it should be the people who pay you for the goods and services you provide them in a willing seller - willing buyer transaction. I don't think he means you're own motivation and abilities to earn the most - or the least - you possibly can. I think he means it should be the government through an assortment of programs and policies including extra taxes if you do well. But, of course, we can have some comfort in knowing that Obama's $5 million income won't be the limit! But wait, no we can't be comfortable, because government rules are always complicated by politics to except certain classes of people over others. We can safely assume that he means our income - not his! I think it's best we let the market decide how much is enough. That works better than any other system yet devised.
