Interesting “comment on the comments” – A “homelander” who might understand:
How sad to see how insensitive so many of the comments below are to fellow Americans who are simply protesting against being made scapegoats by misguided US government tax policies. No other country in the world penalizes its citizens with double taxation requirements like this. We should be encouraging our citizens, especially students and young professionals, to benefit from seeing the world and working in foreign countries if possible. But with these kinds of rules they will not go abroad, and foreign employers will not hire them.
It would benefit us all to have a citizenry with a broader worldview. And maybe then we wouldn’t see so many of the ungenerous and ignoble comments that have been filed in response to this well-written and genuine posting.
