    Hollywood keeps its tax break in 'fiscal cliff' deal

    Hollywood keeps its tax break in 'fiscal cliff' deal - latimes.com

    Middle-class taxpayers aren't the only ones who stand to benefit from the last-ditch deal to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.
    This is like something out of a bad movie.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Obama could take a **** on his dinner plate, and he'd say it a fine aroma. Obama can do nothing wrong.

    Except that most of the Hollywood donors you're talking about are actors, while it is film and television executives who lobby for those tax breaks.

    Actors =/= Executives
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    And executives are not donors? Try coming up with an equation that works.

    They are.

    But they are also just as likely to be donors to Republican politicians as well.

    And the executives of other industries are donors to politicians of both parties in order to get tax breaks too.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    And movie stars are just as likely too. What are you kidding? And besides, it wasn't a break from the Republicans.
