Stealth Energy Tax Hike on Senate Agenda for September - Big Government And as usual, the morons who don't understand how business works, will think this is great. They never get that corporations don't pay tax hikes--WE DO!!!!!!!! We pay these tax hikes, since the corps simply pass this added expense along IN PRICES! What choice do they have? You can't expect a business to eat possibly millions without passing it along in prices! Democrats rely on the ignorance and gullibility of their voters to never figure that out. They never figure it out on minimum wage votes, so why should they figure this one out!
