    I also think that these tax policies have been made into group identity issues.

    I don't think they get as far as thinking about self interest and trying to protect the rich.  I think they operate on a much lower level.  Low taxes for the rich is their battle cry, instituted by those most likely to benefit, and it serves to identify the in-group from the other.

    They are much more interested in which team wins.  In that way, the actual policy is almost arbitrary to them.
