    This shows one of the major problems ailing our public discourse. There is no agreement on what words mean. Both side routinely use words inaccurately to make their point. They are also guilty of the gratuitous use of adjectives designed to inflame instead of inform.

    A couple of examples...

    Tax Credit vs. business expense
    Devestating cuts vs. slowing the rate of increase

    Until our representatives can agree on what words mean and are consistent in their use when debating and campaigning, the public will have a hard time determing what the truth is. People are too busy to look into the facts surrounding every claim made by the candidates so they rely on their own understanding of what words mean. We end up with three groups trying to communicate using distinctly different vocabularies.

    I have to add a couple of my favorites.

    A tax loophole is one that you can take advantage but I cannot.
    A tax deduction is one that i can take advantage bbut you cannot.
    A government austerity program is limiting gov. spending to only a little above inflation.
    A cut is beginning limiting gov increase in spending 5 to 10 years from now.:razz

    How do these work??

    Those are good.

    Loophole is one of my favorites. Romny is being vilified for using loopholes to avoid paying his fair share of taxes, when in fact he is working within the (overly complex) tax system to calculate his taxes due.
