The Rich and the Rest

Before this Matt Yglesias post gets lost in the Phantom Zone where all posts over a month old go, I wanted to highlight this sentence regarding the GOP's electoral alliance:


There’s a disjuncture between the funding base of a movement focused on rich people’s tax rates and the voting base of a party relying on older working class white people for the bulk of the votes. 

As one of my previous posts tried to address, I sense a lot of tension between how the Republicans win elections and what they do once they've won elections, and I wonder how this will play out once the economy starts to normalize towards the end of this decade.  And yes, we're only one year into this decade.
