    that when a guaranteed level is exempt from the cut (I have seen today proposals ranging from 25000 to 100000 Euros as offcut) that you are fine with it?

    The money of the cypriote common folks is a very small part of the deposits. (And British pensionados don´t count there, neither as "common cypriotes" nor as "poor"). Part of being poor is that you dont have large sums of money in banks.

    Why should a German "working stiff" pay through their tax money for people that evaded taxation to Cyprus?

      That "small" amount of stolen money means food for a poor family. Your collateral damage argument is repulsive...and regressive.

      Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.
