  •  I can't believe you can make this argument (5+ / 0-)

    with a straight face.  Last week meet me and my co-workers ate at a nice restaurant.  No one wrote off it as a tax break.  It turns out, that sometimes, people like to eat at nice restaurants.

    Are you really making the argument that everyone eating in Downtown Chicago, NY, LA etc. is on some type of business lunch?  That is silly. If I make 200k a year, I'm not going to stop eating at nice places because my company can't write it off as a tax break.  You're acting as if the only time people eat at nice restaurants is when their company foots the bill.  I'm bewildered anyone would take that argument seriously.  

    •  No, I'm not saying the ONLY time (0+ / 0-)

      what I am saying is that much of the regular business at "nice" restaurants in business areas are business lunches.  And those lunches will happen less often if they cost the business significantly more.
