I am between on whether this is intended or unintended consequences. I’m thinking, as in one of my previous posts, that the government is trying to be the one and only charity. I agree with both aspects and rationale of this article. If I have less, I can only give less–regardless of a deduction. If I give less then less help is available and the only charity left to help will be the government. Of course, as that behemoth helps more, it will need more funds and where do you think it will get those funds?
