  •  This is yet another example of IOKIYAR (6+ / 0-)

    Follow me on this one.  
    1: Ari Fleischer was an outspoken Mitt Romney supporter during the 2012 campaign.  
    2: Mitt Romney's plan to raise tax revenue by closing deductions and loopholes, including a proposed limit on total deductions at an amount to be determined later, would have proven far worse for the charitable deduction than the deal reached to avoid the so called fiscal cliff.  
    3: Fleischer was well aware of Romneys tax plan during the election.  
    4: Therefore, Fleischer evidently thinks it is ok for a Republican to cap deductions on charitable contributions at a much lower limit than what he is complaining about happening under Obama.  
    That defines the truism: IOKYAR.

    I am the neo-con nightmare, I am a liberal with the facts.

      or disingenuous. Probably both, he acts like the charitable donation is a $ for $ tax deduction when that has never been the case. Limitations have always changed on various levels of income tax but it shouldn't stop people from giving.

      If anyone used this as an excuse to not give, I would seriously have to say something to them. He's a fool!
