Remember When It Was Just ALL The Rage…

Amongst the wealthy Leftist set to say “If Buuuuuuuush gets re-elected I’m giving up my US Citizenship” and, er, none of them actually did?

Funny how under Obama things have changed

(Reuters) – 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.

Principal trumps Principles every time, folks, especially with these types.

Remember her?

Rich’s ex-husband, commodities trader Marc Rich, fled the United States in 1983 when indicted on charges of tax evasion, fraud, racketeering and illegal trading of oil with Iran. They divorced in 1996.

Marc Rich received a presidential pardon in 2001 on President Bill Clinton’s last day in office. Federal prosecutors and Congress investigated the pardon, and in 2002 a House of Representatives committee concluded Denise Rich had swayed the action through donations to the Clinton library and campaign.

Yep, her.

    I have to admit, if I could save $10’s of millions, I’d do the same thing, especially when your own near bust government is wasting billions on bankrupt solar panel companies and high speed trains to nowhere.

    Where’s Chuck Schumer? Shouldn’t he be fulminating on camera like he did about Eduardo Saverin?

    Oh, wait, Rich funneled money to Democrats. So that’s okay then. Nothing to see here, move along.
