Ali Velshi & Stephanie Ruhle are earning their salaries several times over as they must continuously call out Republican hucksters trying to sell a faux middle-class tax cut where most of the money, north of 80% goes to the top one percent. What is amazing is even when confronted with the irrefutable facts, they continue to lie to the American people. Share these posts to ensure Americans don't buy it.
Kudos to Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle for being prepared to counter the well-rehearsed lies about the GOP tax cuts from the Republican Congressman.

Congressman Jim Renacci attempted to pull one, over the American people when he stated that the stock market rise was a response to Trump's anti-regulation stance. Ali Velshi did not let him get away with it. He had his charts ready which showed that the stock market has been on the same rising slope for over seven years.
The Congressman then attempted to muddle the waters by asking Velshi to start the chart sixty days before the Obama Presidency. He wanted to show the crater from the 2008 crash. Velshi did not allow the false narrative. In fact, if one were to follow Republican methodology, President Obama's policies relative to the stock market would be judge exceptionally if his name wasn't Obama.
The Congressman continued to claim that Trump's deregulatory environment was responsible for the stock market rise and that the debunked theory that tax cuts would create jobs. Eventually, Stephanie Ruhle got visibly irritated with the lying Congressman and began schooling him on regulations.
Ruhle pointed out that the absence of sensible regulations is what brought down the U.S. economy in 2008. Worse she pointed out that under Republican rule that the same scenario is in the making. When the Congressman said that regulations were already on the books to protect against that supposed eventuality, she refuted him stating that had that been the case people would have been in jail.
Velshi & Ruhle has been the place recently to factually debunk Republican lies on the tax cuts. It is amazing they still show up to do the show. Not really, the idea is to muddy the waters from an otherwise fact-based show.
