How Will We Pay for Obama's New Jobs Push? Answer: Tax Wall Street | The Nation
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?----
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?

tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax....
If liberals EVERY came up with a ORGINAL idea that WILL NOT HURT the Taxpayers, I would friggen FAINT.
You have any idea how much money that would make? There are like a billion trades a day.
