56. Hmm. But taxes on people work differently?

If people's personal income taxes go up, they don't all go out and get higher-paying jobs so their after-tax pay is exactly the same, correct? They just have less, or if they must make it up, have a variety of ways to go about that.

Corporations are no different. A million things eat into corporate profits besides taxes, and they don't all just get added to the bottom line, because the market won't allow it. GM can try to raise the cost of its cars to compensate for taxes, but if Toyota doesn't, it gets the sale.

This is a specious argument that is quite simply propaganda from corporations who oddly don't like paying taxes, despite this theory that they don't really ever pay them.
