    At least our politicians just take it out of our paychecks and say “It’s for the kids!”.

    Its the newest manifestation of HW Bush’s New World Order.

    Actually most of the depositors in Cyprus are Russian oligarchs trying to avoid taxes in Russia. Cyprus is the Med’s version of Cayman Islands.

    oh so the roughly 60k British subjects that will lose huge sums of money are really Russian? FYI Russia has some of the lowest tax rates in the world why do you think there are French millionaires moving there to get away from taxes?

    Everything has to come back to Bush, for you, doesn’t it? Last I checked, no American President has anything to do with this issue. Go troll somewhere else.

    If it works, it is a small price to pay for fiscal accountability.

    Dems want to do the same thing.Hmmm maybe thats the only way most of them would ever pay any taxes at all.But they would only tax those that didn’t vote in their primary.Has Google moved their money back to the USA?Has Warren Buffet paid his Billion dollars in back taxes?

    So apparently its ok for the Russian oligarchs and mobsters to launder their money through Cyprus.

    Shocking! Even more surprising is that her view isn’t so different from Tom Toles. It’s not so simple as either one of the cartoons imply though. There is that Russian money thing (not so much how many depositors as how much). EU member states do not want to spend their money bailing out rich Russians (oh, and a few Britts) who may have their money there to avoid taxes at home and in some cases laundering criminal gains. Then there is the fact that it was the Cypriot Government who suggested this way of raising funds to save their banking system who’s problems come in large part from involvement with Greek banks… and last I heard, they unanimously voted down the law to actually grab the money.

    You guys want to elect evil but you claim no responsibility for the results.

    Why can’t the EU just give about a trillion dollars to the banks? That should take care of the problem….worked here in the States……
