    I'm just having a difficult time believing that UBS is actually going to turn over these names, and find it more difficult to believe the IRS or any other agency of government is going to do anything to these wealthy people. For some reason, it never, ever works out that way and I have no reason to believe it will be any different this time.

    The rich don't pay anywhere near the same percentage of their incomes to taxes as the common man does and yet even with the small percentage they actually pay, they look for ways, and have the means, to avoid even paying that. I'd sure like to see some of these people pay for their crimes, but they are the part of society that lives by the "other" set of laws!
