I agree with your sentiments on tax deductible charitable donations, but can you imagine the fuss from the charities if they were no longer able to claim the tax back? Not sure about US, but in the UK we have 'gift aid' whereby you sign a form to say you have paid tax on income that can be reclaimed from your donation.
