Welcome to the Fight against Financial Transaction Taxes.

This thread is designed to ensure our viewpoint gets into the press and directly to our Political Representatives in Washington DC.

We do this by rapidly responding to pro-tax articles whenever & wherever they pop up while ensuring we don't fan the flames on this issue.

Our goal is to get the volume of the talk of this tax down to zero.

At risk is your livelihood.

We operate in a low volume, high quality mode where posts remain professional & directly on the topic of the taxes.

Please join us.

However, there will be also assigned market makers like in former pits - and they will have a hell of a good time

massive taxation and reform of Capital Market is coming. Obama nation, that is what the country's majority voted for.

However, might not see such tax until 2010/2011.

I'd suggest posting comments at the comment link on that NY Times page. The comments so far are overwhelming pro-tax.
