Unnatural Coupling

This from Sheila C. Bair, former chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, writing in the New York Times:

But I fear that government actions, not merit, have fueled these extremes in income distribution through taxpayer bailouts, central-bank-engineered financial asset bubbles and unjustified tax breaks that favor the rich.

This is not a situation that any freethinking Republican should accept.

This is believed to be the first time since the early 20th century that the words “freethinking” and “Republican” have been seen out together, holding hands in public.

Not a situation that any freethinking Republican should accept?!?!?! This is the situation Republicans have been fighting for since Hoover. This outcome--a return to Gilded Age standards and laws--is all the party has been about for the last 90 years. Why WOULDN'T any Republican, freethinking or otherwise, not just accept but celebrate the situation?
