    1% financial transaction tax and eliminate reduced capital gains rates.

    A transaction tax would help curb the automatic trading programs some of these Wall Street firms have. It would cost $1 to buy stock valued at $100, but cost nothing to sell it.

    Just exactly who do you think Wall Street is?----:cuckoo::cuckoo:

    Millions of American investors--including small business--Americans with 401K's--saving for retirement--Americans that save for their kids college educations--the 5 year old that Grandpa set up a college fund for--etc. etc. etc.

    Americans OWN Wall Street--and they pay taxes on the investment income they earn.

    Can you liberals really be this dumb?

    I think its a bad idea to target one specific industry, and one specific industry within an industry.
