Republicans are wide open about what they stand for. The weird thing is that it's not for the people who vote for them, and yet those people keep right on voting for them.

Does any politician ever do anything that benefits the people who voted them into power?

Does it ever happen on either side?

Any politician, any thing? Sure. You're going to need to be a little more precise to get a rhetorical question that actually implies what you want it to imply.

The other extreme (well, part-way there): Is there any politician who gives everything to every supporter that the supporters thought they were going to get?

Uh, that's a no.

But only the king gets anywhere close to everything he wants. And that's what the messy compromise of democracy is all about.
