    Senators to Unveil the ‘Ex-Patriot Act’ to Respond to Facebook’s Saverin’s Tax ‘Schem

    GOOD!!! GOOD!!! GOOD!!! and I know it wont pass the far right house majority....but its exactly whats needed to slap that young punk right in the face and any more like him...GET OUT...pay first and then never come back.
    Im leaning more and more democrat all the time...they are obviously the only ones looking out for Most americans...and not a select group.

    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.
    In September 2011, Saverin relinquished his U.S. citizenship before the company announced its planned initial public offering of stock, which will debut this week. The move was likely a financial one, as he owns an estimated 4 percent of Facebook and stands to make $4 billion when the company goes public. Saverin would reap the benefit of tax savings by becoming a permanent resident of Singapore, which levies no capital gains taxes.

    Awww...Poor Chuckie...all bent out of shape because a bunch of rich guys want to keep what's theirs and won't willingly give it to the government to spend.

    Chuck would be better served by understanding why these guys are leaving in the first place and trying to work with them...rather than act like a child and try to punish them.

    I'm glad the House won't let this stupid bill pass.

    Facebook didn't just spring up out of the Internet...somebody created it, nurtured it and grew it into what it is today. That somebody wasn't the federal government.

    Not at all what I said. IMHO the guy is free to be as unpatriotic as he wants to be. I'm also free to say screw the little ungrateful brat who has benefitted immensely from an investment of tax payers dollars that went towards the development of the internet.

    I'd bet that that initial investment has been repaid many times over by the revenues generated by profitable companies that have utilized the internet. Should one have to "repay" that debt forover or are you proposing individually? Sounds like a sweet pyramid scheme.

    Frankly, the investment into the "internet" had nothing to do with the public. It was a military venture by DARPA to create an interconnected network for the military.
