The giant cries of protest sweeping across the country are starting to reverberate in the halls of Congress. Support is growing in Congress to establish a tiny financial transaction tax on every single trade of stocks, bonds, options, futures, swaps, and credit default swaps.
This Wall Street Tax would discourage the kind of reckless financial speculation that helped crash our economy, and it would help create jobs and protect vital programs like Medicare and Social Security.
