  •  I don't know how one 1/2 of 1% on only (7+ / 0-)

    some trades cannot be considered small.

    It certainly is small compared to the damage done by the financial sector.

    .01% on derivatives especially is virtually meaningless.

    I mean, we pay regressive sales taxes 50, 60, 70 times that and more...

    Also, imagine what the difference in tax revenue would be.

    Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
