Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee and anti-Trump Crusader Keith Ellison called on federal authorities to “start talking about” mandating CEO salaries throughout the United States; calling the move a “very good idea.”
Ellison was speaking with Bloomberg TV when he was questioned over the government’s role in regulating the pay gap between corporate executives and lesser paid employees; citing a new report that CEOs make 339 times the amount of their average workers.
“Are you favoring the government actually regulating the relationship between CEO pay and the average worker?” asked the Bloomberg reporter.
“I think it is a very good idea, and I think we should start talking about it,” Ellison fired-back.

CLINTON CHAOS: Ellison DODGES on Hillary's Role in 2018 MIDTERMS
Democratic National Committee Deputy Director Keith Ellison refused to answer questions surrounding Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2018 midterm elections Monday; deflecting the issue and saying the liberal message is more than “one person’s comments.”
“Republicans think Hillary Clinton is going to be a weapon for them because of those comments she made a few weeks ago about Trump areas in the country being backward-looking,” said MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki.
“The road to a House majority goes through some places that Donald Trump won. Those comments from Hillary Clinton, are they going to hurt you at all?” he asked.
“We’re going to focus on working-class, kitchen-table issues,” deflected Ellison. “People want to talk about pensions, wages, people want to know if they get a job will they get a livable wage?”
“I take the point, but the Republicans are saying your message is going to be undercut because of [Hillary’s comments.] Is that going to hurt you? Do you want her out there campaigning for Democrats?” he pressed.
“I don’t think one comment that one person makes is the issue. People want to know: What are you doing for us?” said Ellison.
