In a special legal breakdown, MSNBC’s Ari Melber addresses the renewed scrutiny the tech industry now faces in light of the pandemic. While tech titans like Facebooks’s Zuckerberg and Amazon’s Bezos have raked in billions of dollars, Congress is debating whether to renew or slash jobless benefits of just $600 for Americans. Four of America’s top tech companies faced Congress themselves today, pressed by lawmakers for breaking the rules of capitalism. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 7/29/2020.

    “can’t believe I’m related to these corrupt individuals” – Mary Trump

      @Gyrene_asea There are several Trump supporters who are not racists( including blacks). I am sure you are the one trolling by stereotyping all Trump supporters as racists. Also, trying to protect your race is not racism.

      @Aja Kim  Also, it’s disgusting to see the extent to which the left has indoctrinated the people of America. You will repent calling me a ‘racist dog’ the day your daughter gets molested by some Mexican “immigrant “.

      @Jeremy Backup “Dirty, stinking, Communist……”
      Was that supposed to be an insult? There are no longer communists in Russia, it has become an extreme case of capitalism, a Cleptocracy with a small band of oligarchs fleezing the country for all it is worth, while the majority of the population does barely manage to make a living.
      THAT is what 20 years of unrestricted GOP government would do to America too. The signs and plans are already clear to see. Calling aRussian a “stinking Communist” is not just historically ignorant, but also a laughably wrong analysis of 2020 politics.
      If you wish call him a Stooge of Putin’s Mafia or a paid foreign Trump-Enabler. But do not embarass yourself and those reading you by throwing around the communist “accusation”. That is schoolyard level “insulting”.

      @Trailin’ Annie how do You know what their party affiliation is? I can guess what Bezos is because he owns the Post and Whole Foods, or so it would seem that’s a reasonable deduction. But a lot of wealthy business owners contribute to both parties. I think the Zuck might actually be leaning Right. Most of the Republicans in Congress come from poor Red States. Kentucky is pretty high on the list of Federally funded handouts. Most of the Republican slogans are just crazy lies — like Trickle Down. I’ve never met a dollar yet that didn’t float up. But it’s all a numbers game. Republicans have realized years ago that it doesn’t matter what they stand for, all that matters is how many people they can get to stand with them.

    March 16th – “I rate my handling of the outbreak as a 10 out of 10”

    South Korea – 0.9%
    The UK – 1.9%
    Germany – 2.8%
    Canada – 3.0%

    The USA – 8.1%

    Donald Trump “The only reason we see so many cases is because of the amount of testing we’re doing”
    Donald Trump “When you test you create cases, so we’ve created cases”
    Donald Trump “So I told my people, slow the testing down please”

    • @Football Nerd Where does the 462,590 come from?

    • Misunderstanding… I based the percentage on the basis of infections/ population.

    • Yeah, if hospitals don’t accept any covid patients, the hospitalization rate is zero… LOL

  8. Why do Republicans believe that gutting rules and regulations promotes Capitalism and free markets? They worked so hard to paint Elizabeth Warren as Socialist because she promotes a rules-based system that is enforceable and a fair playing field. She is more pro-Capitalist than any of these sociopaths.

    • Jeremy Backup | July 29, 2020 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      In the 1970’s huge corporations were taxed at 30%+. The average American family needed one adult working to afford a new house, new car, and put food on the table.

      We removed taxes for corporations, and now we need 3 adults per household working, just to make ends meet.

      If Trump wanted to make America great again, he’d raise taxes to 1970 levels.

      There have been several studies showing had we stayed on track with where we were in 1970, the average American would be making $22.35 an hour as min wage today, and we’d be enjoying the greatest point in American History, as we did in the 70’s.
