U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says Illinois-based Walgreen’s made the right decision in keeping its corporate headquarters in the U.S., instead of moving overseas to lower its corporate tax bill.
Durbin had been a vocal critic of that possible Walgreen’s move. In an interview for the 970 WMAY News Feed, Durbin said Walgreen’s realized leaving the U.S. would alienate American consumers.
But Durbin’s GOP opponent Jim Oberweis accuses Durbin of attacking “job creators” like Walgreen’s while doing nothing to ease their tax burden.
