    Obama to Limit Pay for Wall Street, NFL, NBA, MLB

    by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 53 Comments

    (2009-03-22) — With the debate over AIG executive bonuses nearly bringing official Washington to a standstill in the past three weeks, the Obama administration today expanded its plan to control Wall Street executive pay, adding provisions to limit compensation for star performers in the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA) and Major League Baseball (MLB).
    “Some of these sports stars, like AIG execs, have negotiated sweetheart deals paying them millions of dollars, and yet they lose games,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs. “The president shares the outrage of the American people at these obscene salaries and bonuses. There’s nothing that makes the little people feel littler than the thought of these fat cats getting fatter just because that have specialized skills that are in high demand in a free-market economy.”

    Government needs to stay out of sports they have enough on their plates to worry about without getting into this.

    This maybe is a joke however Congress already gets too involved in the world of sports where they do not belong

    If it brings ticket prices down, I'm all for it. Also, while he's at it, Obama should bring down the price of Grey Goose Vodka. Damn that stuff is good.

    He's not kidding, he's just drinking some Grey Goose as we speak, I would imagine. :)

    To CW...

    If you're a vodka drinker, try out Tito's Handmade Vodka. It's distilled in Austin but it's pretty widely distributed. There's no elegant bottle, the label is just dull paper, but it may be the smoothest vodka that you ever try. It is absolutely unbeatable for the price. Try it out, seriously.

    lol, you guys kill me. Would it really kill you to click the link and read the article yourselves before posting? ;)

    Anyway, pretty funny article, if that were the case, the Lions entire next season would be on the house.

    I like this one better: http://www.scrappleface.com/?p=3404

    But I'm not sure if it's racist. :eek:
