So Halliburton gets the nod on government contracts, which US tax dollars fund by the way, and then Halliburton decides its going to take their money and run.
If this company is allowed to take US tax dollars and move its headquarters overseas, where it won’t pay US taxes, that is fundamentally wrong.
Cheney was Defense Secretary under George HW Bush. After the first Gulf War, as CEO of Halliburton Cheney defied his own country’s sanctions and did business in Iraq (through a French subsidiary). And now the VP’s former company is moving out of country !
It is an outrage. Halliburton should be required to give back every cent of its government contracts in the past 15 years to bail ship like this.
