Capitalism poof... where is our revolution?

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...googlenews_wsj

In the annals of what used to be known as American capitalism, yesterday will go down as a sorry day: The Treasury and Federal Reserve announced wage controls on private American companies. So once again our politicians are blaming bankers, rather than addressing the incentives the politicians themselves created for bankers to take excessive risks.

President Obama cheered the pay reductions as "an important step forward" and urged Congress to "continue moving forward on financial reform to help prevent the crisis we saw last fall from happening again." The pay curbs are intended to feed the official political narrative that the bankers caused the entire crisis, and that cutting their future pay will prevent the next one. Only a politician could really believe this, or at least pretend to.
If this isn't grave danger to everyone who calls themselves a citizen, then I don't know what is.

The government can now weaken anyone by taking their money. Then just put them out of business.

I say we're doomed. Get your gun while you can, government controls our pay now.
