Republicans see their own political fronts as charities as they cleverly disguise them. They say "the IRS doesn't consider a tax deductible political contribution 'charity,' anymore than it does a business expense."
These Republicans lie.
Here's the proof that contradicts their phoniness as these Republican fronts 'fess-up' to being charities by advertising themselves as such.

It says, "The Heritage Foundation has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities."
Is this the 'charity' and giving to the poor that Jesus talked about?
