    It looks like another defecting, I thought Democrats only did this if a Republican won.

    Wealthy people leaving the United States due to overbearing taxes does NOT help the middle class become better off, it hurts us.

    This is another example of the consequence of the policies of "liberal" govt and the unintended impacts said policies have on those such policies are sold to us as helping.

    A liberal democrat is giving up her U.S. citizenship because of her U.S. tax bill.
    I guess she must have been a closet Republican, not wanting to pay her "fair" share and all that.
    Was not the first and certainly won't be the last.

    Yup. This is how it starts, folks. First you see the rich flee to retain their wealth, then we'll see politicians pipe up about what a disgrace these people are and then they will try and penalize them by making them pay taxes anyway or a heavy penalty to withdraw their wealth from the country.....Coumo is already on it. I saw him on the glowing rectangle this morning talking this very shit.

    This is despotism in its infancy. I hope you younger folks enjoy the young adult version.

    Billionaires/multi-millionaires taking their money out of the country, out of U.S. banks makes every average joe's mortgage interest rate, car loan rate and home equity rate go up.

    As I said, this consequence of overburdensome liberal tax policy has the unintended consequence of hurting the middle class.
