Who doesn't want to be American? Seriously?

Plenty of people are paying $2,350 to GET RID of US citizenship, many who never wanted it and it was forced upon them. So many are getting rid of it that the fee to do so has gone from $0 to $450 to $2,350 US in just a few years.

I hear some of their tax laws are pretty stupid.

I have even money saying we can match them foolish law for foolish law and perhaps even come out being able to say "We win"!

Not in this case:

"The U.S. government has long created hardships for Americans who live abroad, and much of the problem relates to the tax code. America is the only country that taxes citizens on their global earnings, and in 2010 Washington exacerbated that by passing the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or Fatca. As this law comes into force, it is doing immense harm to Americans and American interests abroad."
