    Is he also willing to renounce all of the U.S currency he has amassed? He should have to forfeit all, HYPOCRITE!!!

    It is ungrateful for this young man to make his fortune in the United States and then renounce his citizenship to avoid taxes. But to me, it is worse for a man to make over $200 million dollars in the USA, take his money and put it in off shore accounts to avoid paying taxes, and then run for president saying he cares about the workers here. That is what Mitt Romney has done. The taxes he avoided, legally to be sure, would have paid for many teachers, police officers, firemen, and other workers who have lost their jobs due to the recession. Actions speak louder than words. If you love your country, you pay taxes so your country can stay strong and people can stay employed...especially if after paying those taxes, you and your family would have more money than you could ever spend in a lifetime. It seems to me that Mr. Romney loves his bank account more than the Americans he would help by paying his fair share of taxes. I would worry that that same attitude would govern his decisions as president.
