    He lives in CA

    At that 1%er income, he gets it in the ass, twice.

    So why the hell not move?

    seriously, CA is bleeding wealthy, they are $6 Billion in the whole and going to raise taxes.

    Yep what an asshole. Abandon the country that allowed him to get fabously wealthy and refuse to pay his share to support his nation.


    Lets see how the other country treats the asshole.

    If it's for taxes, he's doing it because 15% on his capital gains is too much.

    And what is "his share" exactly? Do you think the idea that he migh save $600M doing so suggests that taxes aer too high here?
    Or do you think he has a patriotic duty to pay taxes?
    btw, how many jobs were created through Facebook and his investment there?

    I think his new country will treat him fine. $600M will buy a lot of champagne and vodka.
