Part of Obama’s recent budget plan calls for limitations on the tax-deductions on wealthy people’s charitable giving. This idea goes beyond bad to somewhere in the realm of creepy. It is blatantly obvious that such a move would cause a decrease in donations to charitable organizations.
When asked about that, the OMB said Obama planned to take care of the decline in charitable donations by giving charities government money to make up part of the difference.
I see. So instead of individuals giving their money to charities of their choosing, government will have yet another section of society beholden to the election of more Democrats. Then charitable organizations of every stripe can line up with all the unions and community groups to await their handout. The charities deemed most worthy will coincidentally be those with the most liberal connections and those whose members put forth the most aggressive lobbying efforts on behalf of Democrat candidates.
