Wait until the Liberals in the US see this, they are not going to be happy!

They will immediately demand that the U.S. raise taxes to become number 1

To be fair one would have to look at what criteria they used. It's no secret that Aruba has no problem figuring out creative ways to tax visitors and residents just like everywhere else in the world.

OK this is totally off topic, but.........
New tax laws in the US just gave me the biggest tax refund ever.....
I will spend a couple extra bucks in Aruba this year(topical) as a result.

This "fact" has already been discussed before and is taken out of context. The rate only applies to wage earners who make over a certain amount. It's not every Aruban who pays this rate.

The United States could raise the entrance fee from $10 to $50 per visitor and pay off a lot of debt. In fact, charge an extra tax to go see Mickey Mouse in Disney Land or Disney World for non residents and let's pay our debt down. Not hard.
