    U.S. Expats Balk at Tax Law

    When foreign banks won't open accounts for US citizens because of the paperwork and documentation, the hassle of being an expat starts to tip the balance away from citizenship.

    No, the article assumes the link.. he has not gone out and interviewed ever single person on why they gave up their citizenship. And dual citizenship issues are a very valid reason.

    Possibly I guess, but do you have anything to go on other than a thin possibility?

    That was a nice burn. Unfortunately, I don't think he's going to understand why.

    I don't really care if you, or anyone else thinks it is a "burn", what are you? Like 13? In the real world all the insults, and burns, and what ever mean nothing other than to expose that you don't want this discussed....That should be the question why?

    It would help if you understood the topic. Sangha just burned you good, it's also funny that you don't get why.

    Here's a hint: You post an article that bashes the legislation. Then Sangha asks you if you support it while referencing that the majority of those who this affects enough to leave are the 1%.

    So more or less put you between siding with people who have lots of money and lots of money to hide (as evident by the numerous scandals of people evading taxation illegally by using foreign accounts and not disclosing them) or disowning your own argument.

    Somehow, I don't think you understand how you're being beaten here. And by Sangha.

    Well this "13 year old" knows way more about the legislation then you do. Hence why I know you just got burned. See post #27.

    Good riddance. I hope the door hit them in the ass on the way out.
