America has some of the highest corporate taxes in the world. If we keep raising the taxes, or "closing loopholes" , even more American jobs will be lost and more corporations will move overseas where it's cheaper for them.

How does closing corporate tax loopholes increase the size of gov't?
How does increasing taxes on the $250+er increase the size of gov't?
How does repealing the Bush tax cuts increase the size of gov't?
