(Option grants could be paid with options without exercising them.)

Anyone who served a full tour of combat duty in a foreign conflict would have the top rate reduced to 45%. (Combat duty means “feet on the ground” or mission flights – not behind the lines duty.)

I could also see the rate ramp up from say 35% at $2M to 75% over $50M per year.
