The panel on Tuesday’s broadcast of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC criticized Warren Buffet for providing financing for Burger King’s purchase of Canadian chain Tim Horton’s, which would allow Burger King to pay Canadian tax rates.
“I think for a guy talking about the wealthy need to pay their taxes, he has some explaining to do,” said host Joe Scarborough.
BBC anchor Katty Kay added, “I think if you’re going to talk about paying taxes to reach the level that you think the millionaires in the country should pay, you shouldn’t be seen to be doing something that skip your taxes by going overseas”
Columnist Mike Barnicle stated, “If they buy Tim Horton’s, they should be paying their taxes here,” with anchor Mike Brzezinski concluding “it doesn’t mesh with his message.”
