I'll try to help you on this. The only Conservatives threatened by Warren Buffett are the wealthy ones pulling the strings, like the Koch brothers, higher taxes would mean less money for them. Less money for them means less money for (AFP) Americans for prosperity, the SuperPAC controlled by them and used to bankroll the Tea party and to help pay off our congress. The main purpose of this SuperPAC is to bribe congress so congress may consider doing stupid things like weakening the EPA, lowering clean water standards, weakening OSHA, you know things that would dramatically allow the Koch brothers corporations to cut corners and dramatically increase their revenues at the expense of the environment and their workers health. As far as the non-wealthy Conservatives, they're the only ones stupid enough to really buy into the class warfare non-sense. They"re delusional enough to think that a tax on the rich is a tax on them, because hypothetically, one day they could be rich.
20 years experience in the Republican party dealing with these phony easily led sheep.
