It really is a one party system

The Republicans are jumping on the bandwagon to win in 2016. From Slate today:

Earlier this month former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush launched his new PAC with a message geared toward economic insecurity: “While the last eight years have been pretty good ones for top earners, they’ve been a lost decade for the rest of America.” Last Friday former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney talked up inequality, telling a Republican audience in San Diego, “Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse, and there are more people in poverty than ever before.”

Inequality – i.e. “You who work and earn more than I do owe me something – childcare, college, a vacation, sick leave, a cell phone…”  The list is endless, really, so where does it end?  When does it end?  When and how can we make the rest of society an economy of one and self-sufficient? What would message would you like to hear from our conservative presidential candidates?
