In response to those articles touting FATCA as "Tax Justice", the incomparable Lynne Swanson of Maple Sandbox and I wrote an op-ed that has just been published in The Hill's Congress Blog.
Tormented Americans Abroad Need Tax Justice Too
If you have been following the fight against FATCA and CBT at the Isaac Brock Society, on Facebook or here at the Flophouse, the arguments in our article will not be new to you. But we need to keep making them in as many places as we can - especially in Washington, D.C. - so that our side of the matter is heard loud and clear.
Please add your thoughts by commenting on the article. And please pass the link along to other Americans abroad who might be interested in reading and commenting as well.
We may live abroad but we are just as much the "American People" as any homelander. 7 million strong, we are larger than many US states. Time to assert and use what is rightfully ours: a voice.
