MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle repeatedly nails GOPer's butt to the wall for dodging tax question

Raw Story
September 27, 2017


MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday refused to let Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) to get away with dodging a question about tax reform.

Ruhle began her interview with Reed by noting that he had recently attended a meeting with President Donald Trump to discuss tax legislation.

"You met just yesterday with President Trump at the White House and talked tax reform,"
Ruhle explained.
"What can you tell us about that meeting and what specific details did President Trump share about the plan?"

"Well, you know, the best thing about the meeting was we invited the Democratic members of the Ways and Means Committee," Reed replied.

"That's not what I asked you, Tom," Ruhle interrupted.

"I appreciate that, Stephanie," Reed grimaced, before opining about how he welcomed the
"opportunity to be there with Democrats and Republicans."

"Not what I asked 'ya," Ruhle pressed again.

"We're delving into the details," Reed insisted.

"So, what I'm asking you is, besides that it was so great and you were honored to be at the White House and see Democrats there," Ruhle demanded, "what are the details in the plan?"

After her fourth request, Reed explained that the plan would "lower the tax rates" and allow Americans to file taxes on a "postage card."

The GOP is Plowing Ahead with an Audacious Effort to Hijack the Vote and Rig Elections

Alternet.org
September 15, 2017


The Republican Party's efforts to disrupt voting and thwart representative government was on full display this past week, when despite ridicule in the press, the GOP's leading proponents of undermining voters and rigging elections were unbowed and forged ahead.

First came Kris Kobach's willfully incorrect - but headline-grabbing - accusation on Breitbart.com that more than 5,000 people illegally voted last fall in New Hampshire, delivering an Electoral College victory to Hillary Clinton and a U.S. Senate seat to a Democrat.

Kobach, an attorney who's anti-immigrant activism launched his career, is the Kansas Secretary of State, a current gubernatorial candidate, and co-chair of President Trump's Orwellian-titled "election integrity" commission.
Kobach was caught mangling some Republican-produced data about New Hampshire college students who were perfectly legal voters to make his false claim about presumed Democrats voting illegally.

Kobach's antipathy toward non-natives voting is nothing new.
He has been repeatedly sued in Kansas over adding qualifications to the state voter registration form, including targeting out-of-state voters who have moved there.
That creates new barriers to vote in local and state elections.
Kobach's anti-democratic partisanship was in sync with another clumsy display this week from another outspoken voter suppressor on Trump's election panel, Hans von Spakovsky.
Now at the Heritage Foundation, Spakovsky led the second Bush administration's voter fraud crusade at the Justice Department, and was caught lying about his email lobbying to keep Democrats from being on Trump's panel.
