    There have been some proposals to eliminate corporate taxes.  However if you take the economist matra to heart; "tax the things that you do not want more of", than maybe the corporate taxes should be based on their reliance on entitlements (food stamps, CHIP, etc.) for their work force, local tax reductions for facilities, and lack of responsibility for their wastes to support their profit margins.  If it encouraged them to pay a living wage, support local communities, and reduce pollution for the folks who live near their facilities it could be a win-win for both.  At least it would put the burden on the source of the problem.
