Um ...

At the forum on national service, dealing with a question regarding expanded federal grant funding for community service opportunities (i.e. non-profit work), John McCain said he wasn't sure if he could support that because he wouldn't want to stifle the work already being done by agencies which don't receive funding of that type.

Now, speaking as someone who works with non-profits in areas such as these, I haven't met one yet that would be 'stifled' by additional funding. It seems to me there are probably logical arguments to make against such funding, but 'stifling' their work by increasing their revenue doesn't make sense at all to me.
