    I have no "bone to pick" with either of you, except that I disagreed with the "mortgage deduction"--which has been used by Americans of all income levels, for decades.

    For instance, a person could live in a "lean-to" that has a morgage on it, and if one's overall itemized deduction meets the percentage for the filing year--be eligible to use the "mortgage deduction."

    A lower income individual might meet this overall annual deduction due to catastrophic medical bills, for instance.

    So it it not a tax expenditure that applies only to "the wealthy."

    That was my only point.

    And I have no idea what you mean by "Lots of lip service out there."

    I've made a factual point.  

    Check it out, please, before calling it "lip service."
