    Conceptually, the two are very different. This should be plain on its face.
    you would have to define cost.

    Definition of COST
    1a : the amount or equivalent paid or charged for something : price b : the outlay or expenditure (as of effort or sacrifice) made to achieve an object
    2: loss or penalty incurred especially in gaining something
    3plural : expenses incurred in litigation; especially : those given by the law or the court to the prevailing party against the losing party
    — cost·less\-ləs\ adjective
    — cost·less·ly adverb
    — at all costs
    : regardless of the cost or consequences <was determined to win at all costs>
    — at cost
    : for the price of production <buys clothes at cost directly from the manufacturer>

    loss of tax revenue CAN be considered a cost of cutting taxes.

    I notice how you didnt use defintion 1a/b.
    If you have to hunt for a definition of a word you want to use in order to mae a point, it should tell you something.

    If you give tax cuts and later have to borrow money from China and other countries that certainly is a cost. Bush gave welfare to the millionaires and billionaires and paid for it with loans.

    I did. You had to dig for a definition and you bypassed those that are most common.

    Anyone that cannot discern between expenditure and income not generated really should not be posting here.

    how silly....i'm a financial analyst, and btw, that would be anyone WHO cannot discern, in case you missed english 101. see, two can play at that game.

    how do YOU not understand that lost revenue is a cost? it's not an income statement "cost", but it is an income statement reduction in revenue, which has the same effect as a "cost".

    None was necessary, as your response did not counter my previous criticism.

    your criticism was invalid, as well as insulting. that's the way you roll, evidently.
