Yes corporations pay taxes, and spend a fortune lowering their liability through buying legislators. The preferred approach for that liability is to pass taxation costs down the line into higher prices for goods and services.
What no one seems to want to admit is we have a simple solution that even Keynes himself alluded to. If we lowered corporate tax rates there would be downward pressure on prices for goods and services, and by effect we might see more of them purchased. Since our weak economic model is based upon consumer debt purchasing we might find more of that occurring.
It's their money, why is it of any concern to anyone other than an owner/stock holder what they do with it? Unless , of course, you just see a big pile and think the government (and hence you by proxy) should get a slice just cuz.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

You have to ask yourself this: what business is going to produce just to fill up warehouses with goods that they can't sell?
Businesses respond to demand. Without an increase in demand, there is no reason that any company would start producing more.
More demand is created when consumers have more money in their pockets. Thus, if we desire business expansion, we need to be figuring out how consumers can get more money in their pockets.
Tax cuts for those with the highest propensity to spend would be a good start.

So, lets pretend they bring all the money back? what happens? it gets confiscated to the coporate government we have and redistributed right back to them, and the politicians cronies.
Government is too big. over taxes, and should be cut into about a third.
