Re: Of course, Ireland has already protested

The US should be happy about this. It would discourage the many inversions that have taken place (where big US company buys smaller non-US company and moves HQ to lower-tax non-US location).

The reality of course is that those in charge of these big companies, or who are large investors in these big companies, have control of the US government (corruption, aka "lobbying") and other institutions and don't want to see people taking their big wads of money from them.
