MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle compared GOP tax cuts to a natural disaster that would kill poor people on her show on Tuesday.

Brendan Greeley, a writer for The Economist, said that the only thing motivating the tax reform effort was House Speaker Paul Ryan’s desire to get something done.

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens brought up a classic thinking puzzle, “If a tree falls in the forest [and no one hears it, does it make a sound?]”

After Greeley continued criticizing the effort to cut Americans’ taxes, Ruhle suggested the tax plan would kill people.

“If a tree in the forest and kills a bunch of villagers, isn’t that worse?” she asked.

The Economist writer responded, “Of course!”
