(Newser) – Jamie Dimon had a pretty decent year: The JPMorgan CEO, who steered his bank through Wall Street's meltdown and saw it emerge as arguably the healthiest US bank, took home $20.8 million last year. That's up roughly 1500% over his $1.3 million compensation package the year before, notes Reuters.

The breakdown: $1 million salary, $5 million bonus, almost $8 million in stock awards, $6.2 million in option awards, and about $600,000 in perks.

This is a well-deserved reward for cheating the American public, fixing influence in government to obtain even more of Americans' money for free, and getting away with it all. Priceless. Dreams do come true in the Land of Opportunity.

Damn I bank with Chase, maybe I should switch banks, but I don't know to who, I like Chases overdraft policy on their checking accounts, since I was with U.S. and got raped by them. And I get text phone alerts though I'm sure more banks have that now. I'm open to suggestions though.
