Corporations, especially originally American ones, should help pay for the infrastructure we all need, them no less so, to keep this country functioning. For all the highways, bridges, schools, airports, everything, that we need and that they need for employees and transportation of their products, everything, the least they can do is pay some to help keep it all functioning. Besides being practical, you'd think it would also be a patriotic and fair, even intelligent, thing to do.
We can hope.
