Wall St. Tax
I support a Wall Street Tax which research shows could generate from $50 billion annually to $800 billion over the course of a decade. A financial transactions tax would affect mostly higher-income taxpayers, and the funds could support other vital programs, such as a tuition-free college education program. Such a plan would build a robust American workforce, strengthening America’s position as a world leader. George Washington said, “Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.” The time is now for America’s wealthiest to pay taxes based on their incomes, and not based on their ability to secure unfair tax breaks.
