Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's already the case in France, and it's lousy and strongly abused.

Such investments essentially allow high brackets tax payers to get interests on their taxes...

Plus, it means that unlike lower income tax payers, higher income tax payers get to decide which government programs their taxes are spent on. Very undemocratic.

An example : to help service employment, house employee's wages are tax deductible, in France. Which concretely means that if you pay enough taxes, your babysitters eventually cost you half their wages ; that's very regressive...
