Taxing them more simply means higher prices for all the customers. That would be us, not them. If they keep prices the same, it means less investment by them in jobs, or higher prices for us, period.
. Wrong. There's a third and obvious option, lower profits. Apple's profit margin isn't some fixed value and higher expenses (e.g. increased tax payments) can't arbitrarily be covered by raising prices or cutting expenses elsewhere. If Apple could raise prices as easily as you imply they would have already done so to maximize their profits. If Apple could cut their expenses somewhere (e.g. salaries) in a way that wouldn't affect their profits they would have already done so to maximize their profits.
