No, Obozo Is NOT the Only Statist in D.C.

Never let it be said that the Republicans in Congress aren't Statist-inclined twits.

The Republican House of Representatives may soon follow the Democratic Senate and give the IRS the power to confiscate your passport on mere suspicion of owing taxes. There's no place like home, comrade.

'America, Love It Or Leave It" might be an obsolete slogan if the "bipartisan transportation bill" that just passed the Senate is approved by the House and becomes law. Contained within the suspiciously titled "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act," or "MAP 21," is a provision that gives the Internal Revenue Service the power to keep U.S. citizens from leaving the country if it finds that they owe $50,000 or more in unpaid taxes — no court ruling necessary
....Vox quoting IBD

Well, if there's a tax deficiency, properly proven and documented, I have a better solution:  let them leave, but not RETURN until arrangements are made for payment.  Make it clear well in advance.  No need to take away the passport at all!

Boy they are worried about not redistributing the wealth......

Sen. Chuck Schumer, Casey is introducing a bill that would prevent U.S. citizens from renouncing their citizenship in order to avoid taxes.
