Were the heads of major (formerly) U.S. corporations to say to us: "We will bring all the jobs we exported overseas back to the USA if you reduce the corporate tax rate to 20% (an idea that Romney and Obama supported in their debates), but we want all the tax we owe on income we hid overseas to be evaluated at the new rate, not the old", you and people like you would praise that idea! It would never in a million years occur to you to say "No, that's unjust! You have to pay all the back taxes you owe!" You wouldn't say something that stupid because you recognize that the laws and taxes that were in place were unwise and counter-productive and had ruinous unintended consequences.
