The US Senate just passed a bill (introduced by Barbara Boxer) that allows the IRS to confiscate your passport, if they claim you owe them more than $50k. And, as we all know, the IRS operates on a "guilty until proven innocent" system. So, the government is now claiming essentially arbitrary powers to limit your ability to leave the country. The bill hasn't passed the house yet, but "is expected to" according to talking heads. Somehow, I doubt Obama will veto.
