Roberton Williams, senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center, said it's impossible to calculate the exact effects of all the tax changes, but said the overall result is clear - less philanthropic giving.
"This will lead people to give less to charities if they behave the way they've behaved in the past," he said. "We've already seen a drop in giving as a result of the economic collapse. On top of that, this will just reduce the amount of giving."
Obama wants more money for his government. One way to get it is to eliminate the "tax loophole" of tax deductible charitable giving.
Can you believe it? Yes I can! Here is what the Supreme One accomplishing with this new rule:
1.) Collect more taxes.
2.) Lower charitable giving by individuals so more people will be dependent on government welfare. Don't forget, charitable giving helps unfortunate lift themselves up while government welfare keeps them poor and maintains them in poverty. That's exactly what Obama needs.
3.) Individual choice in charitable giving is not good for Obama. Obama would rather have money funneled into ACORN, Planned Parenthood and other leftist non-profit organizations.
There you have it: Grand designs on your life by your grand master Obama.
