These poor companies really need to weasel out of taxes. The merger is likely to be controversial and increase pressure on Congress to take on the inversion trend.

Greed, greed, greed! What, the pathetically low rate they currently pay after all the ridiculous tax breaks and subsidies is still too high?

We are heading straight for an age of monopolies. Where's Theodore Roosevelt when you need him?

They should be paying MORE taxes, given they're a BIGGER company now. . .

Noted. Thanks, Judy.
When is that darn pendulum going to start swinging back in the direction of the 99%?! Things cannot end well continuing to go in the greedy direction they are going.

well every company and a lot of rich people try to avoid tax , as long us it is possible this will go on.
Lawyers just get paid for that, less tax more income, always on the edge of legality

Why is this not a CRIME?????? Our political system needs an overhaul. Unfortunately, It's not happening anytime soon...Bernie had a great start. Folks don't understand that if Citizens United and big banking were changed for the greater good, our lives would be different...even border on happy! Whoopie on The View said that in the past we would question outrageous statements and facts. Today, the sheeple love Trump...And I personally cannot comprehend the Hillary support...Big banks, pharma and insurance oh my.
