AMT and fifteen year mortgages.

I find myself limited in my ability to refinance anything close to the value of my property and to continue to deduct the interest.  I had taken out a loan for $225K for 15 years, and now it is paid down to about $126K.  If I borrow $225K, I can continue to deduct the interest on Schedule A, as it is not more than 100K over the existing loan, but I cannot deduct interest on the amount above 126K on AMT.  No one talks about that when discussing the advantages of 15 year versus 30 year mortgages.
