    People pay taxes as that is the way the free market has always worked.
    Sports fans, all coroprations do IS COLLECT the taxes and pass it on.
    No corporation has ever paid one cent of tax ever.
    People pay them. Living, breathing folks.
    Corporations are entities. Force corporations to pay more taxes and Americans' taxes go up. All that does is raise the prices of the goods and services corporations provide to consumers.

    Good sense and government policy do not go hand in hand.

    Corporations COLLECT $ from the consumers to pay the taxes.
    A corporation is an entity.
    People pay the wages, not the corporations. People buy the products with their $.
    All a corporate entity does is collect the $ and pass it on.
    Without people buying goods and services with THEIR cash, please tell us how the corporation puts any cash whatsoever in their account.
    Basic elementary economics needs to be a requirement in the public schools. I learned this my first semester in Econ 101.
    The basics.
    Again, corporations do not pay taxes. People do. All a corporation does is COLLECT the $ in add on prices to their goodsand services.
    Taxes go up and the prices of goods and services go up.

    So many simply do not understand.

    When you raise taxes on a business, that business raises it's prices to make up the difference. You the customer pay the tax for them. You simply believe it is normal inflation.

    A company provides goods or services at a price and payroll taxes pay for the labor that produces the goods or service which generates the revenue. Yes, the price has to have a margin to be worth the effort. As health care costs increase, cost of labor increases, utilities increase, cost of loans increase, the profit margin decreases and all of the above is reflected in the price to the consumer. Still, the corporation pays payroll tax every quarter. If the margin becomes unprofitable jobs are lost and eventually no one can afford the increasing price of goods and services. The market needs to sustain that natural balance.
