The GOP tax bill has triggered a lot of resentment and anger from liberal politicians, and Barbra Streisand sees it all as some sort of conspiracy:
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that blue states, athletes, actors, writers, producers, and directors will be punished by this scam of a tax bill, where billionaires get billions, and the middle class gets bupkis (practically nothing) – and an eventual tax increase.

Aren’t Hollywood liberals always complaining that they don’t pay enough in taxes?
I thought you wanted rich people to pay more? So, pay up.

Yeah, it’s almost like they’re not being serious with the “raise our taxes” demands.

Meanwhile, political leaders in certain blue states are in a panic because they might be forced to reckon with their enormously high state taxes, such those paid by residents of Malibu for instance.
