The corporations generate jobs, the people who take the jobs pay the taxes. No corporations, no income tax. Tax the corporation too heavily and they move somewhere else. You want to go back to some kind of barter system, swapping chickens for sweaters then go join a commune, hippy.
That is such a bullshit argument. Corporations used to be pay 50% tax and they still employed people. Guess what. Large corps pay virtually no tax these days and they're deserting the middle-class like rats leaving a sinking ship anyway. Your sort of nonsensical point of view results in nothing more than an overall depressed wage and declining standard or living. At the current rate of decline you won't be able to distinguish the U.S. from Mexico inside of 20 years. The saddest part is people like you bend over and take it, which makes it harder for everyone else because you think everyone else should bend over and take it to.

"The share of the national income that goes to the bottom 90% of the American people shrank from 67% of the total in the late 1970s to about 52% twenty years later. Almost all of the missing income was redistributed to the very richest Americans, the top 1%. Their take of the loot-already a robust 9.3% in 1979-had more than doubled to 20.8% by 2000. And that's before George Jr.'s tax cuts... "
