Buffett begs for this, yet he himself pays an extremely low tax rate.  

Also, some of these corporations asking for higher taxes 1) are friends with the politicians, so they support them in exchange for favors 2) Increased regulatory fees like sarbane-oxley pretty much make an extremely high barrier to entry for new comers.  If a new comer had to pay 5 million a year in regulatory fees, it would be easy for them to fail.  A big established company will gladly pay 5 million a year to squash would-be competitors.
