Highest-Paid CEOs Often Earn More Than Company Pays In Income Taxes, Study Finds
These are the Folks the Repukes are working for...
Not the American People...
Its working out for them just fine during the worst economic disaster in American History..
It should.. If you own the Airways and have the cash to bribe all in Congress with huge amounts of campaign money...
Five top companies in American own and control all that Americans see and hear in all the media from news to the movie they think you will buy and watch..



WASHINGTON - Twenty-five of the 100 highest paid U.S. CEOs earned more last year than their companies paid in federal income tax, a pay study said on Wednesday.

It also found many of the companies spent more on lobbying than they did on taxes.
