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.

Ellison: ‘A Very Good Idea’ for the Government to Regulate CEO Pay

“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.
