The socialist safety net needs to be funded somehow. Personally I would gladly trade my student loan payments and health insurance payments for a 20% increase in the price of film. I know the socialist system doesn't explain all of it but you have to take a holistic look at expenses.
That's your issue not ours, if you don't like it protest and get it changed. There's probably no other country in the world with such a disfunctional system of government who are so afraid to make the better off pay a decent level of tax in order to benefit the country as a whole.

It has nothing to do with why prices in the US are so low compared to the rest of the world because even with the tax element added the differential is still large.
