Socialite dumps US passport and most taxes too(Denise Rich)
http://www.msnbc.msn.com ^

Posted on 07/09/2012 7:34:28 AM PDT by jakerobins

Denise Rich, the wealthy socialite and former wife of pardoned billionaire trader Marc Rich, has given up her U.S. citizenship - and, with it, much of her U.S. tax bill.

Rich, 68, a Grammy-nominated songwriter and glossy figure in Democratic and European royalty circles, renounced her American passport in November, according to her lawyer.

Her maiden name, Denise Eisenberg, appeared in the Federal Register on April 30 in a quarterly list of Americans who renounced their U.S. citizenship and permanent residents who handed in their green cards.

By dumping her U.S. passport, Rich likely will save tens of millions of dollars or more in U.S. taxes over the long haul, tax lawyers say.

Maybe it is not just a case of avoiding taxes, but perhaps many are just fed up with the crap from the overlords in DC!

This saggy-boobed mess helped make Bill Clinton richer by acting as the middle-man for her ex-husband’s presidential pardon purchase.

Well, this particular little venal Commie was certainly OK with “The Overlords” when they pardoned the piece of criminal, human detritus that is her husband.

This sloppy socialite has been hosting fundraisers for every leftwing politician of the last twenty years.

She drilled the holes in the bottom of the ship, and now wants to be the first one on the lifeboat.

No. She is simply behaving rationally.... In general, we should respect individuals and businesses who move out of the United States, when they determine that our tax rates (and other laws and regulations) are comparatively worse than those elsewhere.

This is notwithstanding other reasons to dislike the the Riches.

Only legally and maybe not even then. Money is fungible and these people are always after influence and prestige and that comes with 'bribes'.

As far as these 'Rich's are concerned, the Clinton pardon of her former husband, Marc Rich, who was convicted (in absentia) of tax evasion and materially assisting the Iranian theocrats when they were holding the American Hostages, has never been given sufficient study. This pardon, done on the final day of Clinton's Presidency, stinks and this dropping of citizenship by his former wife demonstrates that the Democrat war against the rich applies only to non-Democrats. Faugh!

There are some interesting numbers below....at some point its gonna start looking like a “bank run” ...which is essentially what it is...

The Feds are desperately worried some of the 50% of the population they uses as cash cows to help them fund their delusions are catching on...and leaving....

“Last year, almost 1,800 people followed Superman’s lead, renouncing their U.S. citizenship or handing in their Green Cards. That’s a record number since the Internal Revenue Service began publishing a list of those who renounced in 1998. It’s also almost eight times more than the number of citizens who renounced in 2008, and more than the total for 2007, 2008 and 2009 combined.”

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/16/us-usa-citizen-renounce-idUSBRE83F0UF20120416

Even more alarming....in 1997 the list was ONLY 90 people renouncing...so that year, 2011, it was TWENTY times greater that in 1997...

Don’t be surprised when you see wealthy ex-congresscritters leave for good.

The elites are jumping ship, they’ve made their fortunes, and their slogan has become, FUUSA.

If you think that giving up citizenship will stop the donations from foreigner to American political campaigns, you are sadly mistaken about the level of corruption in both political parties.

Denise Rich was very fond of Billy Jeff Clintoon, as we recall. Clinton was persuaded by her very generous checks to go easy on her criminal hubby.

The Rich have always fled when it suited them. Best not to judge them for doing what most of us cannot even consider (but I still find myself wanting to!).

I guess some FReepers are The Rich as well, since we hear declarations of their plans to go expat on this failed country.

That settles it! When I become rich I’m moving to foreign country! Idaho or maybe Oregon. No,no,no...California.
Yeah, I know California isn’t a foreign country but it may be by the time I’m rich.

Why California? Why not? It has some beautiful country and the rich live well no matter where they are.

Not only was Marc Rich pardoned, but his $150 million tab with the IRS was pardoned as well.

They should throw this hypocrisy back in Clinton’s face, after he pardoned criminal Marc Rich for money. Tax cheats who now trade in their citizenship.

This is after we heard Schumer lecture people are fleeing the country for tax reasons.

Will Obama pardon Tony Reszko, the felon that bought him a house?

Oh, I'm sure he has a whole stack of pre-written pardons in the desk, and has his minions processing visas like crazy for countries that don't have an extradition agreement with the U.S.

Completely off topic, but offensive enough for a ping. A disgusting political figure like her ex, she's clearly a citizen, born here in 1944. Pop, who is the source of her citizenship, was Austrian. Don't know her family background but it's probable he came here during a period of stress back home. Things were a bit stressful for Jews in Europe at the time. A shameful act of ingratitude for what might have been her survival, even if not to the nation which made her rich. I sincerely hope the decision was made out of her desire to be a Euro, not for dollars, which seem insignificant.

To Bubba and Eric Holder, good taste in friends.

Think; irrespective of citizenship; that anyone who 'knows' the 'what/where'fore of Obama; and votes for him; is giving a middle finger to America as well. And that includes those, who would 'otherwise' vote Republican; but are opting out; entirely; 2012.
