Not sure what his other holdings are but FB alone, his tax bill is gonna be around just shy of $1.4 billion dollars. Is that not "fair share" enough. What? Should it be 40%....50%. Sh!t, some would have them take it all!

    Friggin sad how some in this country and government view other people's money, which they had nothing to do with earning, as something they're entitled to.
    People should pay their taxes. The tax rate is determined by duly elected representatives of American citizens. Debating what that rate should be is not stealing. Nobody wants your stuff.

    Except that the bill introduced by Senator Douchmer is proposal to tax income that isn't even earned yet. If Saverin is no longer a citizen of the US, this country has absolutely no right lay claim to earning that haven't even materialized yet. This is utter BS.

    Your lean for example proves that you support parasitic government. "hard labor" is something you ought to try sometime rather than demanding others work hard to fund your existence.

    people have a duty to do what is best for themselves. If that means leaving to avoid the swarms of ticks and fleas that is their choice
    Did you say hard labor? And just what would you know about hard labor? Aren't you a lawyer?

    No, he isn't. Nor is he wealthy.

    Agree with the sentiment that they shouldn't tax future income, but I don't have a problem with him paying the appropriate marginal income tax rate on his income and, in fact, I find his moves to shelter his income by renouncing his citizenship worthy of scorn.

    I heard alot of libs on the radio today and people here lib and con condemning the rich for bailing and wanting to impose fines, penalty's etc on them for daring to renounce US citizenship. It makes me wonder if this is the first step down the road to communism and a totalitarian state, they don't allow people to leave at all and in our case it may start with not allowing rich people to leave without paying a huge fee to the state.

    actually that is wrong. that sort of talent is hard to come by. You lefties haven't figured out that if you pluck over the golden geese they will fly away and you won't have their eggs to fund your welfare socialist vote buying schemes

    While illegal immigration is a crime under Title 8 Section 1325 illegal immigration for the first offense is punishable with 6 months in jail and fined between 50-250 dollars. So he would not be tossed into prison,unless this is his second time trying to sneak into the country which is then punishable with 2 years in prison. You would have to change the law to state that anyone who renounces their citizenship to avoid taxes and comes back illegally will be imprisoned until their pay back taxes. A citizen of another country who is not employed or self-employed in the US does not owe income taxes to the US, they pay income taxes to what ever country they are citizens of. So I do not think you can hold them for taxes they don't owe.

    this is a departure from your normally sound posts. people don't exist to serve the state-especially a parasitic and ungrateful one

    most of the rich are actually the ones providing the slop that the real pigs feed on.
