The Real News Network has the video interview Fmr. Goldman Sachs Trader Supports Robin Hood Tax As A Way to Move Away from Financialized Economy .
You may remember this tax from my March 2010 post The Robin Hood Tax Song.
This tax is such an unmitigated good, that there is no reason to consider this tax before touching earned benefits like Social Security and Medicare.
With such an obvious solution to revenue raising and to definancializing the economy, why would anybody look to any other action before implementing this one?
So when anyone tries to tell you that there is no other solution than cutting Social Security and Medicare, you just give them the old Bronx Cheer and/or the Razzberry.
