Pay czar Ken Feinburg caps exec pay at $500000 at bailed-out firms, but pay attention to all the exceptions... and how few companies this actually applies to. Copyright MSNBC 2009 WASHINGTON - The Obama administration's pay czar is limiting the cash compensation for executives at companies that received the largest taxpayer bailouts to $500000 and delaying some other payouts. The 25th through the 100th top earners at Citigroup, GMAC, American International Group and General Motors must take more than half their compensation in stock, and at least half must be delayed for three or more years, said Kenneth Feinberg, the Treasury Department's Special Master for Executive Compensation. About 12 executives were granted exemptions to the $500000 cash cap because they were necessary for the companies to "thrive, be able to compete, and not lose key people," he said Friday. The new rules will only apply to the second half of December, and will not affect what the employees already have been paid this year. The rules will affect many workers' year-end bonuses and stock grants, Feinberg said. They also will serve as a starting point for negotiations next year over pay packages for 2010. Feinberg already announced specific pay packages for the top 25 earners at firms he oversees. Feinberg's rulings don't apply to Bank of America because its bailouts were repaid this week. Chrysler and Chrysler Financial also were exempt because executives there made less than $500000.
I cut a few seconds out of this interview in hopes of getting in the 10 minutes here on you tube. For the "pay czar" Kenneth Feinberg to set pay caps on any pubic executive is unconstitutional as it can be. I don't care what their salary is, the company's board of directors or stockholders are to set their salary, not the federal government in a "free market" system. This is not the old Soviet Union, it's the United States of America. After hearing this video people should be upset at what is happening and being described here.

What a shill! Kenneth Feinberg puts on a ridiculous performance at the House hearing on executive pay and bonus limits to companies beggin for taxpayer welfare (TARP). This man, Kenneth Feinberg, is the consummate shill. A lawyer who works for Geithner, given the 'pay czar' position; a mythical regulator/supreme master over getting the TARP funds paid back. His performance here, is one for the records. 'Over the top' is an understatement. END THE FEDERAL RESERVE CENTRAL BANKING SCAM of 1913

I talk about Fox News and Obama and the Pay Czar issue.
President Obamas pay czar Kenneth Feinberg announced the United States government will interfere in the pay compensation structure among private companies. These are banks that accepted or were forced to accept TARP (Troubled Asset Recovery Plan) money. - Pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg appointed by President Obama, reports to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. These banks that were in trouble were so because of government mandated and threatened actions. It was the government who ordered the banks to write bad mortgage loans to people who would not have otherwise received such loans. Because of their credit history or other financial reason would not have qualified. After years of writing these government forced bad loans the system collapsed, thus forcing the government to bail out these institutions that were in trouble because of Uncle Sam. Plus some banks refused TARP money, however were forced to accept it. Now the very government responsible for these bad loans now is telling these banks what their pay and compensation structure should be. The Obama administration getting away with the above pay interference then decided to restrict the pay of any company in the USA they deemed to be taking risk or at risk. See The Washington Post article: www.washingtonpost.com A business taking a risk is the essence of capitalism. Whenever a company adds a product or service to the market, they are taking a risk .This is an outright attack upon capitalism in the USA. Capitalism has ...

The Obama WH tries to exclude FOX news from press pool, other networks respond by saying "If Fox isn't there, neither are we."
Fox News' Brett Baier: "There was an announcement by the Administration that they were putting out the pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg as we showed you earlier, for the White House pool, they sent out a message for the White House pool that Feinberg would be doing a round robin interviews with the 5 network pool that covers the White House[...]Fox News has been a member since 1997, when they put out that message they specified that all members of the pool were welcome except Fox News."
The White House press pool is made up of CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX NEWS (which has been a member since 1997). Obama offered interviews with Pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg to all major press pool members -- except FOX. The entire press pool agreed that if FOX wasn't allowed to participate, they wouldn't either. Forced to relent, Obama allowed FOX in.
