.... I myself think it would be much more simple to look into any and all federal tax deductions and
simply eliminate some of these outright.
I would more than welcome the abolition of all nonprofit organizations period, slash exclamation point. Up to and including groups like the ones started by Rockefeller, Ford, Carnage, Mellon, Keith Kellogg, etc. They were all the type of people C. Panther says are yanking the country around.
Besides, a non-profit organization or foundation is one of those HUGE tax avoidance schemes the super duper rich use to avoid estate taxes while at the same time fixing their sons and daughters up with well paying, no work jobs for life managing Pappy's nonprofit.
The government also has so much more experience operating at a loss than all the oil men, railroad tycoons, steel barons, and shipping magnates combined that the government has an unfair advantage operating at a loss. Get private industry out of the business that the government does best, (operating in the red) :-D and maybe then we can pry the government out of your business and mine.
