Hatch's spokeswoman, Antonia Ferrier, chastened Democratic Sens. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.) for seeking to punish the wealthy co-founder of Facebook for renounced his U.S. citizenship just a few months before he stood to gain millions in the social networking site's initial public offering.
“You’d be hard pressed to find anyone applauding someone renouncing of his American citizenship to avoid his tax bill," Ferrier said in a statement. "But as usual, the response from the other side of the aisle is a talking point rather than a real solution."
