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?
