Since my children do not utilize public education, is it within my rights as a taxpayers to refuse to pay for others to go to school? What if I think I will never need food stamps or TANF? Can I stop paying those taxes as well? Is it ok for me to send a list to the government of what I think is acceptable for people on welfare to buy since, you know, I pay for it & its MY money & not their money?

I believe that OP is making an analogy to abortion being in the health care bill since many people disagree with paying for abortion.
Regardless, I will answer on the homeschooling question. I believe if someone that has children and is homeschooling that they should be able to pay a lower tax rate than those that have children utilizing the public school system. I also think that supplies and curriculum for homeschoolers should be able to be written off. As well as educational trips (museums, national parks, etc.).
