Minnesota Democrat Keith Ellison is once again showing what a far left radical he really is. During an interview on the Bloomberg network, he revealed that he wants big government to decide how companies structure their pay. It’s part of the Bernie Sanders philosophy which suggests that the evil rich are robbing from the poor.
Has Ellison ever run a large company? What does he think qualifies him to know better than people who have?

WATCH: DNC Vice-Chair Keith Ellison Goes Radical: Let’s Have Government Regulate Pay Structure of Companies
On Wednesday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) decided he would show that he’s the baddest radical on the block, agreeing that government intervention in the pay structure of companies would be a good idea.
Interviewed on Bloomberg, Ellison cited his report which claimed CEOs make, on average, 339 times as much as the median employee.
Bloomberg host David Westin prompted, “Is it enough to just get disclosure? Because I think that’s what you’re advocating. This is not a big secret to shareholders. It’s not a big secret to board directors. Don’t you need direct government intervention? Are you favoring the government actually regulating the relationship between CEO pay and the average worker?”
I think it is a very good idea, and I think we should start talking about it. But I want to go further than that; I’d like to see shareholders say, “Wait a minute, what’s going on with my dividend? What kind of risks are you taking on to get these exorbitant amounts of money that could end up imperiling the company.
