I believe that the two examples I gave qualify for your criteria.

The Oil companies are making $30-40 BILLION in profit every year. If we stop the $3-4 BILLION in corporate welfare, they will be fine.

If we limit mortgages on the 2nd home to $500K, the economy will not be hurt. They can still buy the first house at $20 million house and take all the mortgage dedututions.

Farm subsidies, WTF are we paying BILLIONS to corporations and farmers to NOT grow anything on their land?

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
