Why is this so difficult to understand?
Shouldn't corporations and people have to pay, both for access to what are supposed to be the best markets in the world but also so we can have the infrastructure we need so we all function. The highways, sewage systems, airports, streets, schools--God knows, the schools---etc., etc. What's so difficult about this?
And if they're American companies to begin with, isn't there an issue of patriotism to be dealt with? Don't they want to be, shouldn't they be good corporate citizens instead of trying to fleece everything and everybody they can, just so they can otherwise have the best, most favorable "bottom line"?
Don't they see, can't they see that improving all these other things and paying for them, with taxes, ends up helping them, ultimately, and actually in rather short order?
