Senate Rejects Cutting Charitable Tax Breaks

Ad Feedback

The Senate has unanimously rejected a proposal by President Obama to cut tax breaks for charitable contributions.

The proposal would have limited the amount that wealthy contributors could deduct from their taxes.

The president wanted to use the extra taxable income to finance an overhaul of the country's health care system.

But Senators were worried that charities would be hurt by essentially raising taxes on contributions.

The Senate amendment is a guideline for committees who will write the final law.
