The Deputy DNC Chair wants the feds to break up “monopolies,” from banks to retail to beer.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee, said at a rally outside the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday that he wanted the government to interfere in every economic sector, from banks to retail to beer.
Using the guise of breaking up “monopolies,” Ellison called for the federal government to hit beer companies, pharmacies, fast food restaurants, airlines and retail outlets, blaming them for the “massive concentration of wealth at the top of this economy.”
Ellison lamented how little choice Americans faced in their purchases, and specifically mentioned Amazon for its purchase of Whole Foods.
However, Ellison’s kindred ideological spirit, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), might be pleased to hear how little choice Americans had in products. In 2015, Sanders criticized how many choices Americans had in products. “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country,” Sanders said then.
