At least it's getting looked at.
Some are going to cry that increasing taxes will slow down business growth. There's a lot of truth in that. Unfortunately others will seek to extend that truth by claiming corporate greed money trickles down and helps the economoy. We all know from experience that's voodoo economics (as George HW Bush described it) and that experience teaches us it's a lie, a way to escape paying a fair share of taxes.
Then the others are going to say that tax cuts for wealthy multinationals shift the tax burden to the middle class and that will depress the economy. There's a lot of truth in that. But then some on the left will seek to extend that truth and try to tax the hell out of the wealthy, the way they're doing in France. We all know that's crap economics too.
The question isn't as clear cut as it appears. Politicians and vested interests keep making a money grab and fouling the discussion.
