Diane Black goes ‘Double Irish’ on Randy Boyd

As some of our commenters have alluded to, U.S. Rep. Diane Black has a new ad out hitting fellow Republican gubernatorial hopeful Randy Boyd for his company’s decision to open offices in Ireland and the Cayman Islands, a scheme known as “Double Irish” that allows U.S. companies to avoid taxes domestically.

The story was first reported by The Tennessean. The conservative website Tennessee Star has video of the ad.

    The United States Congress can fix the problem of how corporations are taxed worldwide any time it pleases! Get busy doing it!

      They had a chance to do it in the Trump Tax Plan….I am sure Alexander, Corker, Marsha and Diane supporters can tell me what these loophole closures were but of the few that I am following they seem to be very much alive and well. And as for worldwide profits….can’t profits earned in 2018 and beyond now be brought home at a 0% rate?

    La Raza Randy will not win the primary. His negatives are huge for just these reasons. And manufacturing in China after terminating his Knoxville employees. Horrible person.

  • Donna Locke says:

    Please be balanced and refer to The Tennessean as the lefty Tennessean.

  • Diane Black voted against stopping these kinds of tax dodges. Randy Boyd is doing the same thing Donald Trump does. Why does Black want us to think this is bad when Boyd does it and good when it’s Trump?

  • Phil Lassiter says:

    Two bad The filthy rich people are running. Randy is a Haslam on steroids and Diane has fleeced they federal government to make tens of millions. The average, conservative person in Tennessee is screwed

    • MarLE says:

      One of them made the money in a business they created and used tax code provisions created by Congress. The other of them did not create and run a business and was part of the Congress that provided the Double Irish loophole plus a 1000 more. Who is best suited to be Governor?
