    US charges Swiss bankers for hiding $1.2 billion - Yahoo! News

    I don't hide my money in foreign banks and if I did I'd be very nervous.

    Not at all. Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and every other flavor ought to suffer for their greed.

    They should get jobs working for obama.

    Trying to make that loser look good must be punishment enough.

    The US has no authority to force banks in foreign countries to divulge confidential information.

    They'll get the little fish.

    The big fish will be the ones who get them, too.

    When did the U.S. government acquire the constitutional authority to regulate foreign banks?

    They were having so much fun infringing on US corporations' rights they wanted to expand to Swiss companies as well.
    The question is why someone feels the need to hide money in a Swiss bank account in the first place. Doubtless the Nazis hounded the Swiss for the names of Jewish account holders as well.

    None.

    They withhold tax at the source even though the authority ended in 1944. They tax "income" even though the 16th Amendment was NEVER ratified.

    But they control the Courts and domestic armies ; so the fuckers get away with murder.
