Why do leftist politicians complain about the astronomical salaries of some but not others? Thomas Sowell explains:

It is not the general public that singles out corporate CEOs for so much attention. Politicians and the media have focused on business leaders, and the public has been led along, like sheep.

The logic is simple: Demonize those whose place or power you plan to usurp.

Politicians who want the power to micro-manage business and the economy know that demonizing those who currently run businesses is the opening salvo in the battle to take over their roles.

There is no way that politicians can take over the roles of Alex Rodriguez, Tiger Woods, or Oprah Winfrey. So they can make any amount of money they want and it doesn’t matter politically.
