I'm all for them having skin in the game, but I'd like to do it by reducing income inequality so they have more, not taking from those who can barely get by today.

Republican politicians are doing all they can to try to discourage these people from voting, so they are hardly listening to them. And lets be serious - do you think politicians listen more to those in areas the politicians hardly ever visit, or the lobbyists and fat cats who drop by with big checks for their reelection campaigns?
Voyager, IMO, Republicans give lip service to 'spending less' just like the Democrats give lip service to 'helping the poor'

Both are said to win votes. So they listen to both but at the end of the day, whomever is putting coin in their pocket is getting the nod.
