Sadly there is very little difference between the two parties.
I highlighted the "Earned" part because you're making an assumption that people earned something because they're rich and that's not always the case. Associating wealth to hard work is like associating poverty to laziness. Some of the hardest working people I've seen are some of the people making the lowest wages.
Our society's fascination with excessive wealth is somewhat curious to me. It's one thing to be well off, but it's another thing to be obscenely wealthy. Some people understand that they're wealthy many times over and they have no problem helping their fellow man. Bill Gates is a perfect example. I believe he has come to the conclusion that the growth of his money is not proportionate to the level of his happiness. Instead, he's using his money to make a difference in some of the most impoverished areas of our world. The satisfaction that comes from helping out those that can't help themselves can't be measured by material wealth.
