We should abolish corporation tax.
Indeed, the CBO (a neutral and non-partisan organisation) recently published a paper [PDF] concerning who actually paid the tax in the USA. 70% of it was paid by workers in the form of lower wages, 30% by investors in the form of lower returns. None of it, not a jot, was actually paid by the companies: they're just a convenient bank account to take it from, not the people ultimately paying the tax.

Corporation tax, far from bashing the rich, actually does a great deal of harm to the incomes of the workers. We should abolish it.

Quite (and utterly deduceable by common sense, if you think about it).

Corporation tax is nothing but a secondary tax on consumption, uber-VAT paid for by customers and collected at the till.

There is no reason for it to exist other than political greed.
