Letter: Profits shouldn’t trump young lives
First Published Aug 28 2014 04:43 pm • Last Updated Aug 28 2014 05:19 pm

In his column ("In a stew over inversions," August 17), George Will asserts that corporate inversions are merely a sensible business practice and attacking this practice as unpatriotic "is amusing."

Incredible! We don’t for a second hesitate to insist that is the patriotic duty of our young citizens to volunteer to possibly pay the ultimate price of being killed while serving in the U.S. military to protect our country. Yet many, especially conservatives, see no problem with U.S. corporations pretending to locate their headquarters in foreign countries to dodge paying their fair share of U.S. income taxes.

So in the American value system, evidently corporate profits and shareholder values trump the lives of our young citizens.
