Daraka Larimore Hall, the party secretary, made the remarks Sunday at the party's annual convention in Los Angeles, where the progressive agenda for the state was adopted.
“I'm going to say something, and it's probably going to get me in trouble, but there are some people who are just too rich,” Larimore Hall said. “If we don't solve the problem of income inequality we will lose our souls and we will lose our republic.”
But who is “too rich”? Is billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer, who spoke at the conference, too rich?
Pelosi is the 15th-richest member of Congress, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, another California Democrat, is the ninth-richest, with a net worth of $41.67 million.
Or what about the Hollywood millionaires who support Democrats? Are they too rich?
Further, what would income equality look like? Who gets to determine just how unequally people are paid? Democrats? Do they have an income range I could view? I would love to see how much people in America should make.
