Oprah signs a $100 million deal last week. And yesterday Obama says, “you’ve made enough money.”

Should Oprah take that personally? Are they no longer bosom friends? Will Obama be working on entertainment financial reform next? And, if so, is Will Smith’s reported $20 million plus gross earnings for making the upcoming Independence Day 2 movie another example of what Obama doesn’t want happening?

Obama told the crowd in Quincy, Illinois, yesterday, “Now, what we’re doing, I want to be clear, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

Apparently, $100 million is fine. At least when it’s Oprah.

But if making money is the problem, if at a certain point “you’ve made enough”, then entertainment is the next obvious industry needing Obama’s cool hand of income redistribution. Perhaps the Obama Administration should take a closer look into the $100 million deal between Proctor and the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).

Or maybe he should leave the private sector alone since he wasn’t elected to judge what does and does not make suitable compensation within the private sector when it’s earned legally.

If Obama wants to dictate income he might start at home, aka the federal government. According to the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis, the average federal employees make twice the amount of the private sector, with four times more in benefit compensation.

Does that count to Obama as “made enough”?

With an insurmountable federal deficit and national debit level, shouldn’t federal workers at least not make more than their private sector counterparts who are actually paying for these excessive salaries?

For decades, public sector unions have peddled the fantasy that government employees were paid less than their counterparts in the private sector. In fact, the pay disparity is the other way around. Government workers, especially at the federal level, make salaries that are scandalously higher than those paid to private sector workers. And let’s not forget private sector workers not only have to be sufficiently productive to earn their paychecks, they also must pay the taxes that support the more generous jobs in the public sector.

On the state and local level, the average public sector employee makes an average of $67,812 – $52,051 in wages and $15,761 in benefits. On the federal level, the average public sector employee makes an excessive $119,982.

Comparatively, the average private sector worker makes $50,028 in wages with $9,881 in benefits, while carrying the burden of paying for their richer, government counterparts.

Since Obama believes “at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” he might first consider the company he keeps might object, at least for themselves – Oprah’s $100 million deal – and then consider taking care of his own backyard like the people he employees with taxpayer money.
