Give Until It Hurts - Because It Will

Re yesterday's coma-inducing Obama press conference, I don't know what irked me more: Barack Obama's desire to reduce "rich" people's tax deductions for charity "just 'cause he can", Obama's firm belief that the wealthy can afford the cut, or his mind-bending belief that charities won't be affected by the cut in deductable contributions.

Obama isn't exactly a pillar of giving. Neither is No. 2.

Life in the age of Hopeandchange.

This will hurt charities really hard not from the very wealthy (old money people) since they've always given their share, but from those that were truly using it as a tax deduction.

Besides this $250K figure is so arbitrary. Depending on which market you live and the size of your family you can go from very well off, to very tight middle class.
