Supporters of Obama are rewarded while opponents are punished. According to Breitbart, Obama is going to force charities to support higher taxes or else the tax deductions for charities will be eliminated.
President Barack Obama’s first term taught businesses a clear lesson: CEOs and businesses that support the president will be rewarded with taxpayer-funded corporate welfare and favorable regulations, and those who oppose him will be shut out or crushed.
On Friday, the Obama Administration sought to teach the nonprofit world the same lesson during a White House gathering of charitable officials, say Republicans, when charities were bullied into supporting higher taxes on the wealthy to avoid losing vital deductions for charitable contributions.
“Today, the White House chose to mislead and scare America’s charitable giving community, using them as pawns in an effort to achieve their tax hike proposal,” said Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the ranking Republican at Senate Finance in a joint statement issued Friday. “This is abhorrent, wrong and needs to stop.”
