I have written extensively about the silence of charity leadership that wants to deny the existence of charity fraud that is so endemic to philanthropy. It is a secret that no one wants to talk about.
Now the Congress wants to take a same tactic by keeping actions hidden from the public’s sight. Here's the way it works:
Senators..."are working on the first rewrite of the tax code since 1986. Instead of revising the existing tax law, they’re taking what they call a “blank slate” approach. They proposed sweeping away the tax code’s thousands of loopholes, then asked their colleagues to submit written requests for the deductions they want put back in, assuring them that the requests would be kept private.
