I can’t believe this segment is even on MSNBC... a big corporation owned news outlet.
Kudos to Ali for doing this; fairly regularly.
Kudos also for having Sam Seder host All In for a day. Make him a regular.

I like listening to Ali Velshi. He tells the truth when talking about the economy. He and Stephanie Ruhl do a great job of explaining all things financial.

None of this is news to me. The disparity always grows when the criminals, I mean the Republicans are in charge.

The "Trickle Down" fallacy has been pushed since 1980 to further enrich the wealthy. Everything Trump pushed for is a GOP wet dream, and will only widen the income disparity that's kept the majority of people's wages from keeping up with inflation. This "Pandemic Response" was to give the vast majority of funds to corporations. The deregulation and wealthy tax cuts disproportionately help the rich. We can make capitalism work, but it requires stringent regulations, and taxes on the wealthy to aid the poor. Those regulations must be enforced with accountability, and examples must be made of the wealthy men (and women) who break those finance laws or try to circumvent the system.

The whole country is in shambles, led by a senile and mentally deficient psychopath. Why are the repubs supporting him?
