Cyprus Rejects Bailout Tied to Savings Tax. Yesterday the Cypus government voted not to accept a eurozone bailout package that would have raided bank accounts in the form of a tax. Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades is now holding emergency meetings with party leaders and troika representatives. Finance Minister Michael Sarris is in Moscow speaking with leaders to see if a bailout could be working out with the Russians.  Reports also say that Cyprus's orthodox church has offered to mortgage its assets to invest in the country’s government bonds. Meanwhile all banks in Cyprus remain closed.
