No mention of avoiding taxes in the article above. But that doesn't mean it won't happen.

Alot of successful people are moving out of California because their earnings are taxed at over 60%. If you only got to keep under 40 cents of every dollar you earned, wouldn't you want to change that?

If we punish achievers by confiscating more than half of their earnings, they'll leave rather than just work to pay taxes. Who wouldn't?

When the "rich" leave to avoid ridiculously high taxation, they take their businesses with them so jobs are lost, and the working class people who held those jobs get hit harder than anyone.

Usually when the rich leave, taking jobs with them, it's to take advantage of slave wages in third world countries. Think maybe those factories and jobs would stay here if we volunteered to work at slave wages? Do you think that's a good idea? I'd also add, if you're only keeping 40 cents of ever dollar you earn you're either living in the 1950's or you need a better accountant.

It turns out Tina just likes living in Switzerland and has been since the 90's.

IDK why people who hate America have to over react to EVERYTHING.

Tina's move has NOTHING to do with TAXES. She said she moved to Europe 30 years ago because there's less racism against blacks there; that blacks can live more comfortably there; be accepted more there. Remember, she was born in 1939 in Tennessee before civil rights laws. She lived as a black woman in America's south before she was wealthy and famous, so I could imagine the racism she and her family must have experienced. So don't blame Obama, blame your white southern mama.

OK, maybe I buy a little of your racist theory.
But she is also a WOMAN, and in many European countries women are second class citizens.

Man is she unlucky, born black AND female!!!!!

Poor thing......lol
