One of you will end up here next!
I think that the intent would be to close some of the loopholes that those multi-national corporations use for tax avoidance, not to just raise corporate taxes in general.
Unfortunately, the SCOTUS has made it possible for those tax-avoiding companies to spend unlimited amounts of money buying elections so that they can keep these loopholes open -- and create more if they can.
Clements said that "we have the best government money can buy" so this is nothing new. If it isn't the corporations and unions and other groups, its the robber barons (aka, Wall Street). Just get use to the fact that our representative democracy doesn't really represent the voters.
