- February 23, 2016

Clinton Bashes Johnson Control's Corporate Inversion, But Their Lead Investment Adviser Is A Clinton Bundler, And The Company Has Also Contributed Six Figures To The Clinton Foundation

In A New TV Ad, Clinton Attacks Johnson Controls For Its Corporate Inversion Plan, Declaring "If I'm President, When Companies Walk Out On America, They'll Pay A Price." CLINTON: "This is Johnson Controls. … But now that Johnson is back on its feet, they're gaming the system and moving profits to Ireland so they can avoid paying taxes here at home. It's an outrage. If I'm president, when companies walk out on America, they'll pay a price." (Hillary For America TV Ad, " Johnson Controls," Released 2/23/16)
