Groups rally against possible Walgreens move from Illinois

Reports surfaced in recent months that Walgreen company would possibly move offshore to avoid stateside taxes. The company has denied it's leaving its Deerfield base. Tax havens are a lure for big companies, and a new report analyzes what this kind of move would mean for Illinois taxpayers. We talk with Nell Geiser from Change to Win Retail Initiatives, one of the groups behind the report, about what they found, and learn more about the rally they have scheduled for Wednesday.
