    Nope, you're wrong. As a legal entity, a corporation can own goods and resources completely outside of it's owners. This is why the corporation can be sued and the owners private property not seized if the suit against the corporation is successful but the corp doesn't have the assets to cover the judgment.

    Because we as a country have massive debt. I like most reasonable people realize we need both cuts and revenue to get America back to prominence.
    so the bottom line is that you approve of the government taking over 60% of the profit a corporation makes

    it clearly demonstrates obsession because you had saved it. I think most people will see what that indicates

    well the government takes 35% at the profit tax level and you all think the top rate should be increased to at least 40% and that dividends should be taxed at the same rate as earned income

    lets do the math

    One mIllion taxed at 35% leaves 650K 650K taxed at 40% (260K) leaves 390K so you approve of a net tax of 61% on that money

    Later

    IOW, you claimed that I said it was OK to tax corps at 60% but you won't back it up with a quote

    That's dishonest

    That would be a reasonable question if the corp was taxed that much. Since they aren't, the question is nonsensical.

    But I do approve of corps getting taxes like individual entities because the status it holds provides a large number of benefits to the owners. If it were a Partnership, then I'd be staunchly against it being hit twice with the same tax. That wouldn't be fair at all.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
