TAX the BANKS

It's time to tax the banks.

A campaign is already underway in the U.K. (see http://robinhoodtax.org.uk/) and some version of the idea has even been proposed by the IMF, strange as that may sound. You may have heard the news recently, with Finance Minister Flaherty going public with his veto on the idea:

Seems to me that this should be a no-brainer, as a campaign that can lift with wings...
