Highlander Doesn’t Explain the Republican Party

Marin Cogan’s description of intra-party Republican feuding misses the mark:

GOP strategist Rick Wilson calls this “the Highlander theory,” after the ’90s TV show about the Scottish warrior who needs to behead other immortals because there can be only one. Ted Cruz became The One by eclipsing Rubio, who had ascended only a few months earlier.

Except for the fact that a nomination process involves winnowing a field of candidates to leave one winner, the Highlander reference doesn’t work very well. Virtually every 2012 candidate that flopped did so because he self-destructed in one way or another. All of the fatal blows for Perry, Gingrich, Pawlenty, etc. were self-inflicted. The same holds true for Cruz and Rubio. For Republican presidential politics to be explained by a “Highlander theory,” all of the immortals would have to be taking their own heads. Once someone has become “the One,” he can’t be “eclipsed,” because all of his rivals would already be dead.

<quoted text>ObamaCare Spending on CONTRACTORS Tops $1 Billion---now lily how much actual health care would that have bought for the poor?
A surge in government spending in the six months before the ObamaCare exchanges went live pushed federal spending to top government contractors over the $1 billion mark, a new study finds.
According to the report released Thursday by Bloomberg Government analyst Peter Gosselin, federal spending ramped up in the months leading up to Oct. 1, with $352 million of the $1 billion in federal contracts to the top 10 ObamaCare contractors awarded during this time.
“In a typical IT project, spending ramps up to a peak, then trails off during the final phase,” Gosselin wrote.
The price tag usually associated the Affordable Care Act rollout is $394 million, based on a Government Accountability Office report. Gosselin argued that study was too narrowly focused, so he expanded his search of a federal contractor databases to include all awards where the acronym “ACA” or other related words and phrases appeared.
“In looking at the full range of ACA-related contracts for just 10 firms, the BGOV analysis found more than $1 billion worth of contract awards,” he wrote.
http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/health-r... -
Do us a favor, take some reading comprehension classes. The article doesn't say $1 billion was spent of ACA Contractors, but with the addition of aCA related contracts, the total of all Federal contracts exceeded $1 billion of which $352 million was for ACA related contracts.
The article then goes on to say, the writer modified the search to include the letters ACA and other related phrases, only he doesn't reveal what those phrases are. The trouble with that approach is you get all contracts with the sequence ACA in them (it doesn't mention if the search delineated between capitals or lower case. That kind of search can result in contracts that have nothing to do with the ACA coming up.

Facebook, which received its first investment in June 2004, operated for a full six years before surpassing the $500 million mark in June 2010. Twitter, created in 2006, managed to get by with only $360.17 million in total funding until a $400 million boost in 2011. Instagram ginned up just $57.5 million in funding before Facebook bought it for (a staggering)$1 billion last year. And LinkedIn and Spotify, meanwhile, have only raised, respectively,$200 million and $288 million.

5) I Think Health and Education Are Human Rights
I think every citizen of our nation has the right to the best health care and education available to them. I don’t think money should ever stand in the way of someone receiving medical treatment or access to education. I think that the very ideas of “for profit” health care and education are reprehensible and repugnant. Democrats want people to be healthy and educated. Republicans want them stupid and filling prescriptions so their drug company sponsors can keep their profits high.
6) I Don’t Enjoy Incarcerating or Executing People
We live in a world fraught with injustice and danger and that means that we need laws, cops, courts and prisons. This is a sad fact but a fact nonetheless. That said I do not believe that we do our society any favors by incarcerating or executing our citizens unless absolutely necessary. There is no need for millions of our citizens to be living like animals in cages for possession of small amounts of narcotics. There is no need to murder other people as retribution for crimes. Ridiculously harsh penalties do not reduce crime. It is a rare criminal that commits a crime with the expectation of being caught. Crimes of passion do not take into account consequences. Better education and law enforcement is a far better tool for preventing crime than mandatory minimums and the death penalty can ever be. Democrats think it is better to stop a crime from happening. Republicans think it is better to punish the criminal more severely.
7) I Think We Are Stronger When We Share Success
I have no issue with a cardiologist making more money than a convenience store clerk. I have no issue with the CEO of the company making more than one of the factory workers. I have no issue with a successful stock trader or real estate magnate making more than the custodian or the gardener. What I do have an issue with is the ever growing disparity between the top tier of the company and it’s employees. If the custodian or gardener really makes a living wage as the “job creators” claim, why on earth does the CEO or CFO need to make 500 times that much money? At what point is this a “let them eat cake” argument? Democrats think that the massive growth in income disparity we have seen in the past twenty years is fundamentally bad for our economy as a whole. We all do better when our citizens aren’t poor. Our economy functions better when we aren’t encouraging our citizens to leverage themselves to the hilt on miniscule wages but rather have citizens who can afford the things that they buy. Republicans think that if we massively increase the worth of our top 1% of earners that this will somehow “trickle down” to the adoring masses, thankful for their master’s scraps.
