Hmmm....so you take full advantage of these 'government subsidies' to your income, without a qualm, and yet you believe that without their counterpart in personal deductions, the folks who currently qualify for refunds at tax time, would more closely resemble Americans.<quoted text>

In my case if they were to eliminate business deductions I would have to raise my prices about 80%.
