    Democrat Dick Durbin meddled in card transactions fees between retailers and banks which resulted in banks shifting the charge to consumers to make up the profit loss. For doing this, they got tagged as evil, greedy bastards.

    Now, a couple of Democrat lawmakers want to tax financial institutions for transactions as a "significant way to raise some needed revenue" and says, “Quite frankly, I bet nobody would even feel it.”

    Evil, greedy, bastard hypocrites!

    Lawmakers to Propose Transaction Tax for Financial Firms Modeled on Europe - Bloomberg

    "Two U.S. lawmakers will introduce measures to impose a transaction tax on financial firms that resembles a proposal released by the European Union.

    Senator Tom Harkin, an Iowa Democrat, and Representative Peter DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat, will introduce the bills tomorrow in their respective chambers. The bills will give the United States an increased role in the international debate over a transaction tax, which is likely to be discussed at the Group of 20 summit this week in Cannes, France.

    “It’s a significant way to raise some needed revenue,” Harkin said in an interview today in Washington. “Quite frankly, I bet nobody would even feel it.” "

    Can't speak for others but I was put off by your thread title's redundancy.
