Texas Gov. George W. Bush's campaign the week of Jan. 17 warned that ad deductibility changes urged by GOP presidential rival Sen. John McCain would severely impact Internet companies.

McCain's plan, 80% of ad costs would be deductible the first year, with the rest treated like other expenses offering benefits of more than a year.
