That's true. I'm against all tax credits/deductions too.
Make it 10% of all income for everybody, period. I'll gladly give up my home mortgage deduction and pay a slightly higher tax rate.
But while it's being offered, there's nothing wrong with taking advantage of it.
I'll go for that as soon as they legalize home ownership and eliminate the rent (tax), which, for me, is 135% of my annual gross income and, as such, does not get paid in full.
