We should absolutely do this, but many business owners would gripe that in a free market economy it would hurt profits. Even making a statement like hat proves what matters to them most and it is not the well being of their employees or their families. (Yet another reasons why corporations should not be treated the same as an individual person) Our world is so backwards with greed and many just don't seem to care enough to make meaningful positive change for the masses. There is a reason why half of Americans don't pay taxes. They can't afford to. If business owners and corporations want to pay less in taxes then they should try providing better benefits and paying their employees enough so they can also pay some income tax, I think they'll find it's win win.
