H.R. 2592: Tax relief for strapped small businesses. Free products for struggling charities. Nothing goes to waste! Congressman Aaron Schock (IL-18) is the sponsor of this bill. Bobby Schilling (IL-17) and Danny Davis (IL-7) are its co-sponsors.

Passage of HR 2592 will address the growing and diverse material needs of charities throughout the U.S. It does this by providing a powerful incentive in the form of an enhanced tax deduction for small businesses when they donate product to charities.

It keeps untold millions of dollars of useful products out of landfills and instead makes these materials available to struggling nonprofits, schools and church organizations across the country.

Please tell Congress that you support HR 2592;  a bill that will allow S corporations and other small businesses to receive an enhanced deduction when they donate inventory.  Visit now.  We can't do  this without your support!

[Editor's Note: Seems like a no-brainer to us.]

Op-ed Guidelines
Please bring up points that were missed, elaborate on issues not fleshed out, add ways to make the idea/bill better, suggest a companion for GREATER Raters to consider. Please check your facts, grammar, syntax, punctuation, credit sources and quotes, and keep it under 500 words unless you absolutely cannot—then never more than 700 words. Please keep your criticism constructive. We will likely not print destructive criticism although a well written partisan rant bringing up new issues in the idea/bill or previous Op-eds may be accepted if it ends on a constructive note—especially if it offers an alternative idea/bill.

Shorter "letters" are encouraged that bring a new facet to the subject. The intent of the Op-eds is to fully cover the issue for the kind reader to consider before rating, and not waste their time with redundancy or the dreaded—"people-screaming-at-one-another-while-wearing-earplugs-syndrome." Think of the idea/bill as the base with the Op-eds stacked on top to form a structurally sound argument. The goal here is to have a GREATER US for the greatest number of citizens/neighbors. We may publish your piece without notice—so please only submit completed articles. We may, also, contact you for a rewrite or edit. We might even offer suggestions. It is our intention to fairly present the views of fiscal conservatives, independents, and social liberals—to find the overlap of whole-hearted support (nonpartisan) plus the commonality of the "I-can-live-with-that" (bipartisan).
