What will be our options if they indeed pass "Let Wall Street Pay for the Restoration of Main Street Act of 2009."? As of now, we will pay about $300 for one round trip of 100 share GOOG. If we make 10 round turns per day, we need to pay $3000 just for the tax in addition to commission fees. The options I can think of are. (1) We all head to main street and compete for hourly jobs. (2) We move to overseas and trade overseas stocks. (3) We buy and hold for bigger moves (ignore money management). (4) We all trade from our IRA accounts. What are your thoughts?
