Senator Schumer and Facebook’s Saverin

Good grief!

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D, N.Y.) has proposed a 30% exit tax on people like Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin. Schumer is unhappy because Saverin has renounced his U.S. citizenship. Schumer believes this is tax-motivated, because Saverin is coming into quite a bit of money from Facebook’s IPO.

Here is the senator:

“Eduardo Saverin wants to de-friend the United States of America just to avoid paying taxes.  We aren’t going to let him get away with it.”

Schumer apparently is a telepath, as he can read other people’s minds. Maybe he can star in the next X Men movie.

Let’s take this a step further. Have you ever heard of Jack Reed? This guy is a Democrat senator from Rhode Island. He wants Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to bar Saverin from entering the U.S.

Really?

I wager I could get a million signatures – without really trying – wanting to bar Congress from entering the United States.
