Bribing The Blahs And The Brahs

I think what's been lost in this discussion is the understanding that this is how Republicans, more than Democrats, see politics. To the victors go the spoils.

JANET MEFFERD: How in the world do you out-left the left anyway? If we go to the left on amnesty, do you think the Democrats are going to sit still and just go ‘oh I guess that they’re more caring than we are’? It’s a zero-sum game. I don’t know how in the world the Republicans expect to get votes when the Democrats are already farther along than we are.

STEVE KING: There’s no possible way. Whatever we might say we are going to do, reduce the enforcement of the rule of law, waive the rule of law, Democrats will find a way to hand deliver citizenship papers along with a great big check from money borrowed from the Chinese.

Republicans think their pals are more deserving of all of the free money they're going to give them, but to them winning is about giving money to your friends.
