    Lloyds Bank hit by Obama tax purge

    Lloyds Banking Group is ditching American customers based in Britain pending a crackdown on international tax evasion planned by President Barack Obama.

    This week American private client account-holders at Lloyds's received letters informing them of an "important change in policy regarding clients who are resident, domiciled or linked to the United States by property or asset holdings". They were told the bank had "no choice" but to "cease acting as your investment manager."
    Yeah, that's right, Obama's running off business left and right! "Change, we can believe in!"

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Just wait until The Messiah lets the Bush tax cuts expire next year.

    We'll look back fondly on our 9.5% unemployment rate we have under The Messiah today.

    ^^Don't forget about his plans for raising minimum wage. Get ready to say hello to 20% unemployment!

    I guess you have no problem with class warfare politics or chasing off the goose that laid the golden egg.

    That was actually my first reaction too.....

    Then I read something about "Obama" and realized it's more fear mongering that there's some vacuum which will steal all my MONIES

    If they are laying their golden egg in another country, then it is no good to me anyway, is it? I only care that people who are "affluent," follow the same rules as everyone else. How is this class warfare? Is it a economic necessity that the wealthy should be treated differently?

    When you tax the income of a man who makes money and lives in this country and most likely spends it or saves it here then you are scaring off the goose that laid the golden egg.
