Anti-business rhetoric from politicians has gained momentum recently with both Republicans and Democrats alike denouncing corporations.
Amid the comments President Barack Obama chimed in, saying he is "very pleased that the Treasury Department is taking new action to prevent more corporations from taking advantage of one of the most insidious tax loop holes out there," as the agency decided to crack down on inversions.
Many pundits have criticized the Treasury's move and called for laws to change, saying that America's statutory taxes are too high. Among the contrarians was the CEO of Allergan who said that the government targeted its $160 billion merger with pharmaceutical company Pfizer. The deal was said to be the largest ever in the industry.
"We built this deal around the law, the regulations, all the notices that were put out by the Treasury," Brent Saunders said in a recent interview with CNBC, noting that last-minute changes to regulations are "un-American."
