The fiscal cliff deal limited the amount of money wealthies can deduct from their taxes for charitable gifts. Ari Fleischer reacted:

So let’s get this straight, Fleischer (and his many others) don’t believe it’s the government’s role to aid the disadvantaged, that’s a job for charities. But he won’t donate much to charity unless he can write it off on his taxes.

He wants us to subsidize his Good Feeling of Giving that’s, in his world, all there is to take care of the poors.

He’s doing it wrong.
