TRANSACTION TAXES ... We already have that. It's called a sales tax. Some want to extend this and create a federal sales tax on top of that imposed by states. Added to this they envision the creation of "transaction taxes" to cover everything else Wall Street related. And... what would these lovelies aka lifer-electeds... do with the added revenue? They surely would not use it (and never have previously) to pay down the otherwise ever growing National Debt. Instead, they will use it to enlarge promisses to voter-constituent they pander to... especially those who do not belong in a voting booth due to being... voter-dysfunctional.
