Republicans Shift Gears On Economic Inequality

Alan: The Republican Party promotes economic inequality only as long as it is politically expedient and beneficial to the wealthy. The enormity of GOP cynicism over the stupidity and ignorance of its low-information Base is the most exceptional component of American "Exceptionalism."

Republicans shift gears on economic inequality. "As recently as December 2011, when the Occupy movements were grabbing headlines, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum could say he was 'for income inequality' because it was the natural outgrowth of capitalism. ... The next year, the conservative National Review labeled income inequality a 'myth.' But many Republicans found the approach wanting." Benjamin Tenerella-Brody for Bloomberg
