Washington likely to keep close watch on tax loophole as Burger King seeks to become Canadian

Once again President Obama demonstrates his contempt for the law by noting that if he doesn’t like the results of the law, he has no respect for the law.

And on the Levin front:

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown urged people to boycott Burger King over its move to relocate to Canada and eat at rival Wendy’s or White Castle instead. Meanwhile, Senator Carl Levin said he believes Burger King risks a backlash from its customers that would outweigh any tax benefit.

Of course, the U.S. could simply amend it’s tax laws to make them compatible with the rest of the world (that is if there is world outside the U.S.)
