Dem Rep Ellison: ‘Very Good Idea’ for
Government to Regulate CEO Pay

Breitbart Video, by Pam Key

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/17/2018 10:22:26 AM

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies. We find that CEOs are paid an exorbitant amount of money’s compared workers.

Let´s start with Congress. They should be making minimum wage per hour, and only paid when they are actually either on the floor on Congress, or in their office WORKING!!!

As soon as Congress passes this "common sense" idea, then they will show me that they are serious.

Otherwise, let the free market be the free market. I know LIE-berals hate the free market, since it rewards those who are willing to work the hardest and take the most risk. And we all know that WORK is like Kryptonite to LIE-berals. They hate it and can´t do it. Too many years of welfare state mentality...

Spoken like a true commie.

I have noticed a LOT more leftists registering communist ideology recently. When you add up people like Ellison, academia, the media, the entire Obama Administration, some congress members and certainly the media, we are inundated with leftism. Are we taking this seriously enough? Or are we becoming boiled frogs?

Yes Keith it’s a very good idea for government to regulate everything it can think of. The goal is total and complete control. How about we regulate your good ideas? It’s not a good idea. Apparently free market capitalism is a business model you aren’t comfortable with. Best you move to Venezuela or Cuba where business conditions are more to your liking.

Let me regulate YOUR pay, muzzie.

Isn´t it strange how Congresspukes get AUTOMATIC pay increases, UNLESS they specifically vote them down?
Isn´t it strange how Congresspukes get to have a paid staff of a hundred employees and yet still rely on "Lobbyists" for all their "data" they use to vote on a particular issue?

Ellison, you´re part of the criminal machine called the Federal Government. We need to investigate ALL monies going in and out of your office. CEO pay is required by Federal law to be accounted for in SEC filings, yet, the people who make the laws don´t want their pay and incentives to see the light of day. Who is more corrupt? Always the legislators.

There IS the point however, that CEOs ARE often exorbitantly overcompensated, while employees have meager wages. I just don´t like when gov´t thinks it´s oversight might be necessary. Is there another way to address this issue?

Actually, Congress DID attempt to regulate CEO wages when Clinton was in orifice, and it backfired! It´s the Board of Directors who regulate the pay of a CEO, so if Congress says their basepay is too high and lowers it, the BoD will simply give them a higher bonus, or more perks.

Congress just needs to go away, as the free-market is OK without their "help."

This is simple. Well too complicated for Ellison, but never the less simple. As a shareholder of Acme Widget, your CEO earns what the shareholders deem him to be worth. If you don´t happen to own shares in Acme, it is none of your business.

So regulating CEO´s pay will increases wages how? Any savings will be distributed to the shareholders, not the workers. Corporations do not exist to provide wages to workers, they exist to make a profit for the owners (i.e. shareholders). And if companies want to pay their CEO more, they will just move overseas. Remember when Democrats tried to punish Alliburton? Halliburton moved its headquaters overseas and oh, by the way, took its corporate tax dollars with it.

The problem seems to be that the CEOs´ pay is determined by boards of directors, that usually include other corporate executives, and vote for high executive compensation. One possible brake on this is for employees to own stock.

Right on, L Dotters. Let´s start with the truly useless people like Congress, pro athletes and movie stars then work our way through the ranks of all government worker drones. Yes, some CEOs are overpaid but the truly great ones like Jack Welch are worth ten times what they are paid based on how well they ran their companies.

Let´s start with you!! I think personally a member of congress and his or her spouse should never make more than $100k a year from ALL sources.. period. Let´s sic the IRS on the lot and drain ´em dry. 100% tax on anything over 100k. Also, no more than 2 residences that can not total more than $500k each in value. Let´s talk about your pension and retirement.. hey and your healthcare while we are at it. And you ask who am I to make such determinations... right back at you Ellison.. who the hell are you??!!

John Kerry Spits In Trump’s Face—
We Will Not Go ‘America First’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry warned President Donald Trump Sunday that Democrats are not afraid to go against his “America First” policies. “We won’t win, any of us, ultimately, by retreating within our borders, by focusing on our own nations only, or by going it alone,” Kerry told those gathered at New York University’s Abu Dhabi’s commencement ceremony Sunday — a direct reference to the president’s “America First” trade and immigration policies. Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was

For the past two years the Media/Dems have relentlessly attacked President Trump, claiming that he “colluded” with the Russians to beat Hillary. They cannot accept that President Trump beat Hillary and is dismantling the Obama “legacy.” Mueller and his staff of Hillary/Obama contributors disguised as attorneys have wasted over one year on this investigation. One principal premise of the so-called “collusion” is that the Trump campaign met with and contacted Russians to obtain “dirt” on Hillary and the DNC emails. The logical questions are what dirt could the Russians possibly provide that we do not already know about Hillary, and

U.S. Imported More than 10M Immigrants

The United States has imported more than 10 million legal immigrants in the last ten years, federal data circulated by the White House reveals. Since 2008, the U.S. has admitted and permanently resettled close to 10.8 million legal immigrants, a foreign population that exceeds the entire population of New York City, New York — where more than 8 million residents live. Of those roughly 10.8 million legal immigrants resettled across the U.S., the majority derives from the process known as “chain migration,” where newly naturalized citizens are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign.

He also met repeatedly in the
