Borrowing to finance a business is expensive enough to begin with. Losing the tax deduction for business interest expense (BIE) opens a new wound and pours salt into it.  If new §163(j) applies to limit the BIE deduction, interest expense stacks up like checkers on a bad checkerboard. If it stacks up on you, then maybe, just maybe, you can deduct it later, or perhaps it will sit there and just rot.
