Social Activism ,Political Commetary and Solutions
AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Taxing the .01% is the right idea. Use an asset tax of 5%. Convert Hedge Fund 20% fees to ordinary income or their fees are deferred? Then Americans will have more income for a Social Safety Net. Close tax loopholes. Add a 6% tax on Derivative trades ( every $100 bundled) Government would collect almost $1 Trillion a year and take risk out of the Market. Increase the Corporate tax rate to 28% and add more money to fund new innovations and decrease Corporate influence. Don’t stop at taxing the ultra wealthy, start reduction of Oil and Big Farm Subsidies & create good Renewable jobs. Take all Corporate influence out of Government and let’s fund new business for the 21 st Century.
