Look, you're the one that started this nitpicking and name calling. You want to play semantics games? you're not the only one that can play it.<quoted text>
A tax break is a reduction in the actual tax liability owed after net income is determined. That's why they call it a tax "break" A deduction is used to determine net income.
If you want to refer to deductions as some sort of special tax break, wouldn't that apply to every single expense of the company? I guess using you and the liberal logic I would suggest we start saying companies get tax breaks for _____ fill in the blank for anything under the sun that you want to suit your argument. Don't worry it doesn't make any sense, doesn't really matter the liberal voters are too stupid to look any further anyway.
You were the one taking offense and calling names over the factual assertions corporations having been allowed to write-off shutting down U.S. operations and moving them overseas. Blaming on the dems wanting people to think the government is paying companies to do so; "The dems however want you to believe that corporations are getting paid from the government to do business overseas, and that is simply not true."
Another play on wording. Do we now want to call write-offs as something entirely different from deductions, breaks, etc.?
You got caught in your own game. Now bone up to it.
