ROBINHOOD TAX .org
We need this tax. Why? The financial crisis and the recession have left a massive hole in the government’s finances. Jobs and public services are at risk while many other developed and developing countries face a similar struggle. Thousands of Robin Hood supporters believe that banks, hedge funds and the rest of the financial sector should pay their fair share to clear up the mess they helped create!!!!
In the US, HR 755 was introduced by Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA). See http://www.stark.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2158&Itemid=62.

Tax Wall Street Greed to Fund Global Needs
As a top climate polluter and the world’s largest economy, the United States owes the world a whole lot when it comes to climate change. H.R. 755, the Investing in Our Future Act, introduced by Representative Pete Stark (D-Calif.) this week, would create climate and health funds to help developing countries by taxing Wall Street greed.
By placing a tiny levy on an untaxed financial market, the Investing in Our Future Act could raise $5 billion in urgently needed funds for climate change and health programs in impoverished countries, while reducing the budget deficit here at home.
We need your help to build momentum for this important piece of legislation. Please urge your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Investing in Our Future Act today.
