http://www.zerohedge.com/article/its-official-america-now-enforces-capital-controls Those of you that thought you would sneak your money out of the country...well everytime you make a withdrawal, the US government is going to require the banks take 30% of that money as a tax. They really slid this by without anyone noticing, didnt they? The only exemption is if you hold less than $50k in foreign accounts. Good luck to those of you that were planning to get out of the US. You can now never have a bank account with any decent amount of money in there. You are going to pay whether you like it not.
