  •  It's the psychology... (4+ / 0-)

    1) People associate with the successful and the cool, same as always.  Success attracts "friends" like moths to a flame, failure scares them away like a cat from a water spray.

    2) They subscribe to the devastatingly wrong myth that people with gobs of wealth always deserve it because they earned it through nothing but hard work. There was no role for connections, family, government support via education, business loans, subsidies, etc., sheer luck, good fortune, or of course: out-bullshitting the bullshitters.  

    3)  The corollary being that if audience members themselves are not rich, it's their fault, of course.  

    Republicans have tried to repeal the ACA 42 times now, knowing it would fail. That means we have a party full of people who don't learn from repeating the same mistake 42 times.
