    LOL

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has a status update for Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin: Stop attempting to dodge your taxes by renouncing your U.S. citizenship or never come to back to the U.S. again.

    I find it funny that democrats would push a law against someone returning to their homeland. Meanwhile millions of illegals are sucking at the government tit and cost the taxpayers billions and they don't seem to mind a bit.

    Remember that slogan "America: Love It or Leave It", guess we need to modify it for democrats, "America: Pay Up or Never Come Back".

    Given that he isn't a natural born citizen, he had to apply to become one... should he not also be free to choose to give up that citizenship? (we all have that right)

    That said... he is obviously doing it to avoid the taxes... so I am also all for the move to tax the fucker.

    They use mean annual and five year means in trend analysis. Don't tell me I have to explain the difference to you. "

    I think he's already barred from re-entering the country if it is determined that he renounced his citizenship to avoid taxation (which he clearly did). The main change in this bill seems to be that they can go after guys like him for the taxes as well as keeping them out of the country.

    We should obviously solve this loophole by declaring that everyone in the world is required to pay taxes to the US.....

    I always love watching the stupid proles rush in to be the first to vow their slavish fealty to their rich masters.

    This also highlights a point I have made many times about how difficult it is for rich persons to avoid US taxation completely. Corporations can do it, but people can't.
