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??!!

New Day‘s Chris Cuomo is making the big move to primetime, going up against the likes of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox’s Sean Hannity in CNN’s 9 P.M. slot. The move is an exciting one for Cuomo, who said that “the fight is at night” and he’s ready to “get after it.” But it also comes with deep sadness.

President Trump signed three executive orders Friday containing sweeping reforms that weaken protections for federal workers and eliminate perks for the unions that represent them. Under the new executive orders, estimated to save at least $100 million a year, unions will be charged rent for federal office space and will not be reimbursed for travel expenses or for hours spent appealing worker firings. Going forward, federal workers must spend 75 percent of their time on government work -- some currently spend none -- and agencies must publicly post union contracts in an online repository. Trump also ordered the termination of

The Trump administration moved Friday to officially revoke an Obama-era program designed to entice foreign entrepreneurs to move to the U.S. to invest their cash in businesses here, saying the previous administration overstepped its powers. The revocation, if it becomes final, would be yet another blow to President Obama’s attempts to rewrite the immigration system by executive fiat — a policy that also included the DACA deportation amnesty for illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” a broader prohibition on deportations of most illegal immigrants, and new programs to allow more people to enter legally.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress.

In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes.
