Basically the liberal position is just that:

Is the liberal position that companies should pay taxes based on something other than net income? Or put another way, are liberals against the concept of business deductions?

It's certainly true in CA, where rather than tax a company's income, the CA legislature wants to tax gross income pre-deductions.
