These people have taken their choice to work and live elsewhere, and are conflicted over the need to relinquish their US citizenship to avoid crushing fines for things over which they have little control.

I came very close to marrying and living overseas. This administrative horror would have followed me as well, forcing me to choose between my pride in being American and potential ruin for my family. It is a horrible and unnecessary choice to force people into.

This seems unnecessarily alarmist. My daughter worked and lived in the UK as a military spouse. Potential ruin ? Seriously ?
