Well if you dare try and regulate bonuses or things similar to this, the conservatives riot and declare, "GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER! SOCIALISM! HE'S CONTROLLING US!" So you're damned if you do, damned if you don't.

$1,000 per person for useful training is far different than the extravagant costs that executives rack up to go to vegas. The bank executives that go to Vegas spend more than that on prostitutes and they charge those bills as part of their business expenses.
