VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Well, duh. That applies to ANY tax, fee, or any other expense incurred by any business. Otherwise, the business would not remain in business. But it is surprising to see this admitted on a lib site.

C'mon NM, if one has a spouse that isn't 100, than you should be gratuitous enough to allow Half. Talk about being Chintzy!
