Burger King: Reverse your plans to abandon America

Did you hear the news about Burger King? A few days ago, Burger King announced merger talks with Tim Hortons restaurant --  a craven “inversion” tax dodge to lower its U.S. taxes by claiming that it is headquartered in Canada.

The pending deal is welcome news to investors, who sent its stock up nearly 20 percent.

But it’s a lousy deal for you and me and other Americans because we’ll have to make up for the taxes Burger King stops paying.

Sign former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich's petition calling on Burger King to stay put.
