David Macaray: Columnist at the Huffington Post gets a FATCA education.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you will want to read the recent opinion piece at the Huffington Post. Another application for the Isaac Brock Hall of Shame. 🙂
Rebooting Our Definition of “Patriotism”
In this piece, the author, David Macaray, cites a June New York Post article as his sole basis to rail against the “Ultra Rich” that are renouncing their citizenship. You almost wonder if it is worth trying to educate this guy about the issues via comments like we did successfully with Al Lewis and Peter Dunn. They too went down the unpatriotic renunication rabbit hole on a misdirected invective against those that give up citizenship.

I see David is responding to some well written comments, so he is paying attention, although I am sure he is somewhat surprised by what he is reading. You are welcome to join in.
