There's broad consensus among economists that corporate taxes should be very low. We like to kid ourselves into thinking corporations have limitless money that they acquired unscrupulously to justify taxing them, without realizing that taxing a corporation is a tax on consumers.

That's a big reason why healthcare doesn't care how much they spend to provide care... the cost is shifted to the insurance companies, and insurance companies shift the cost to the insured. Nowhere in the process is there incentive to reduce costs or to compete on price.
