"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."  I don't remember the source of that quote, but it was drummed into me in high school.  The current huge disparity in income and wealth levels in this country is a bad omen; it's had unfortunate results in other societies.  We citizens should at least have the right to know what's going on. 

Therefore, I’m writing in support of a strong Dodd-Frank rule 953(b), one which includes disclosing corporate pay ratios between CEOs and average employees.
