End tax breaks for Tea Party donations

Updated 5/31/2013 10:12 AM

I don't understand why donations to Tea Party causes should be considered tax free. Being a (gasp, shudder) liberal Democrat, I make donations to Democratic candidates, the Democratic National Committee and other Democratic Party organizations, and I have always been informed by them that they are not tax deductible. Nor should they be.

So why should Tea Party donations be considered differently?
