I haven't heard a single person argue that we should not provide discounts to these entities. I and others have argued that these individuals are a different class than most small businesses, and that we should not provide the same discount to all small businesses with the aim of aiding this particular class of organization.

In short, I disagree that every small business with one type of each record should be receive a discount.

I completely agree that the organizations whose cause you are advocating for should receive a significant discount.
