Yes it is a shame that CEO make millions while the company goes bankrupt. The problem with limiting someone's income with a federal law is, the US would experience a major "Brain Drain", with the best and brightest being paid to work for employers overseas.

This is partialy a result of the Bush/Cheney Administration's emphasis on political BS trampling science, and partly the result of the same bunch enacting policies that leave the borders totally porous while hassling honest citizens who happen to have non-Anglo names.
