Ann, they are not raising taxes based on ideology, but based on income. So they're taxing Conservatives too. Antipathy for the Hollywood culture does not justify raising taxes on fellow Americans who are hard working. Ironically, it's liberals who use feelings of antipathy for rich folk to make tax increases sound good, but you're just advocating raising taxes and killing jobs.
The problem with the, "it's inevitable and they'll blame it on us" argument is that they'll blame it on us no matter what. When tax increases hurt the economy, they'll say "It was bipartisan! Republicans voted for it!" What is the limiting principle to this argument? It's a sure way to drive people out of the Republican party tent.
