14. If the government owns half the company, you cant compare the two.

Compare "normal" countries. Ours is the highest, hence all the work to get around it. Raising rates simply gets you more work being done to get out of paying and even less revenue.
You mention the old 92% rate; nobody actually paid that rate. You can make the rate whatever you want, its what actually gets paid that matters. You cant penalize a company for holding cash thats already been taxed. The next step would be to do it to the rest of us. There are already enough in washington who want to start taxing our 401Ks early.
