If allowing tax cuts to expire is the same thing as raising taxes, and if my deductions are more than my tax liability, then shouldn't taking away deductions be considered raising taxes?

This is really amusing...

You throw out a hypothetical case and use that strawman as a refutation.

It's like saying; if you ran around, flapped your arms, honked, and pooped in my backyard would some people think you were a goose.

Of course *a few people* would think you were a goose. Mostly those would be crazy or stupid people.

In the example you provided sure *a few people* would count it as a tax increase - with the same caveats.
