The governments job as far as the economy goes is to give us policies that promote prosperity for the nation as a whole. Not for special interest groups or individuals, that is picking winners and losers. When the nation prospers so to do the charities and the churches. We are a people who gives, when we have it to give. I even know some who always saves a little to give to their charities that really don't have it to give and most put in more than they can afford at the collection plate at church. At least that is the way I see it.
