The Obama administration is starting to implement methods to deter US corporations from participating in tax inversions. Essentially buying foreign companies and moving their world headquarters off shore to avoid paying US taxes. You can read about it here!
It will be interesting to see how this plays out financially and politically. And will the administration and Congress actually work out a corporate tax code the keeps the home boys home. It probably won’t play out in the 2014 elections but it will certainly become a topic for discussion in 2015.
But in the meantime, once a corporation moves via a tax inversion, don’t they cede their rights of personhood and free speech in our political process? Would political contributions to American campaigns become illegal??? Just thinking out loud!

Looks to me like you would be correct.
