MSNBC Tees Up Ron Howard, Jane Lynch to Lend Support to Obama Tax Hike

MSNBC daytime anchor Craig Melvin took minor detours in interviews this afternoon with director Ron Howard and actress Jane Lynch to ask both celebrities to weigh in on President Obama's push for higher taxes on upper income earners.

Both of them are liberals who support Obama and have given to Democrats in the past, so their answers were hardly surprising.

Howard was on MSNBC at the noon Eastern hour to talk about a new PSA he'd directed for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America while Lynch followed shortly thereafter to discuss her new memoir, "Happy Accidents."

Below you'll find screen captures from OpenSecrets.org detailing recent political contributions from Howard and Lynch respectively:
