Inching toward communism?

According to an article in the DCExaminer:
But now, in a little-noticed move, the House Financial Services Committee, led by chairman Barney Frank, has approved a measure that would, in some key ways, go beyond the most draconian features of the original AIG bill. The new legislation, the "Pay for Performance Act of 2009," would impose government controls on the pay of all employees -- not just top executives -- of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government.
Why stop there Barney? Why not set the salaries for all companies that benefit from the stimulus money? For example, if some company got the contract for a bridge that is being built or repaired with stimulus money, the government could set their salaries as well since their salaries affect the price they may charge to work on the bridge!

And the nation's public schools, colleges and universities all get federal help as well. Why not set the salaries for all teachers and staff?

And once the government takes over the health care system, Barney can set the salaries for doctors, nurses and hospital staff too!

Why do I keep getting the feeling that so many Democrats are really closet communists?
