President Trump stated clearly as a candidate that
many CEOs throughout our country were hugely overpaid. Now is the time to do something about it. Nothing is being contributed to American productivity by giving enormous compensation to executives who may be contributing little to the actual performance of the corporation. Time has come for capitalism to reflect the need for prosperity to lift all boats, so that the country as a whole is stronger. Every other national activity, from defense to education to trade depends on the solid performance of the private sector. Allowing the greatest portion of the hard earned profits to be awarded to one individual at the expense of the work force weakens the long range economic strength of our nation.
Our government must act on behalf of our nation, not favored individuals.
