I checked this out on Truth or Fiction and it is true. The bill is HR-4646
introduced by US Rep Peter deFazio D-Oregon and US Senator Tom
Harkin D-Iowa. It is now in committee and will probably not be brought
out until after the Nov. elections.
Suggest that you pass this along and also to your state senator and
representative and US Congressman and Senators.
One percent transaction tax is proposed
President Obama's finance team is recommending a transaction tax. His plan
is to sneak it in after the November election to keep it under the radar. This
is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution i. e. Banks, Credit
Unions , etc.. Any deposit you make, or move around within your account, i. e.
transfer to, will have a 1% tax charged. If your pay check or your social
Security or whatever is direct deposit , 1% tax charged. If you hand carry a
check in to deposit, 1% tax charged, If you take cash in to deposit, 1% tax
charged. This is from the man who promised that if you make under $250,000
per year, you will not see one penny of new tax. Keep your eyes and ears
open, you will be amazed at what you learn.
Some will say aw it's just 1%... remember once the tax is there they can raise
it at will.
