What's wrong with a tax break? Why don't you amaze the class and explain how Washington DC deserves even more money from its citizens, when its proven itself to be a financially irresponsible joke? The government collects 2.3 trillion dollars in taxes, is that not enough?

Why is it called a tax "break?" The term itself has a government bias. In other words, the government OWNS all of your money. Anything they let you keep is a "break." Any time you purposefully lower your taxes, you are "cheating." Because as we all know, that's the governments money, not yours.
