Guess what? Corporations don't REALLY pay tax. You tax corporations, the price of everything goes up and wages go down. Tax capital gains, the economy freezes up because nobody wants to sell. Tax the rich innovators, people leave the country and innovate elsewhere. Without innovators hopes of making it big, you would have neither your computer nor internet to be reading this. Not to mention that income tax is inherently anti-freedom and is legal theft. Average voters don't understand economics due to bad public schooling I think, at least in the USA. They have that image stuck in their head "tEh corporations r evilz and wants to kill us and take r monies government HALP PLZ!"
