    ...why would they propose a tax plan that gets rid of the tax deduction for charitable giving?

    Or should we logically assume that the charitable deduction is off the table as far as Romney/Ryan are concerned when they're talking about getting rid of various tax deductions/credits/loopholes etc.,

    to make their tax plan revenue neutral?

    I asked if the charitable deduction is on or off the table.

    Is it or isn't it?

    Should it or shouldn't it be?

    I don't know, but I would kinda doubt it.

    I also doubt it would make a bit of difference to you anyway, you don't seem like the 'charitable' type.

    Most Libtards aren't, so you're in good company...

    I don't understand an attach thread aimed at sticking it the the rich who use that deduction to get tons of money back while saying; "Look what a great person I am!"

    This is not well thought out, you shoulda stuck to the lies about hunting Big Bird

    A lot of rich libs think paying taxes is just like charity. No lie . they will say I will pay more taxes it is the charitable thing to do. When they could directly make a difference to certain charities

    Of course any limitation on deductions would have to be passed by Congress, but I would guess a limitation on charitable deductions would a flat percentage (e.g., 25%) of the contribution. This would eliminate the greater tax benefit now realized by people in higher tax brackets.

    The question is, why would conservatives want to end the charitable deduction, and disincentive charitable giving,

    when conservatives go on and on about how charity is so important?

    I'd rather know why you base your charitable donations (if any) on whether you can deduct them on your taxes?

    Just because liberals would stop charitable giving if the deduction went away don't project that onto conservatives.
