Demand The Robin Hood Tax

The U.S. is hurting. Large banks and other Wall Street firms raided our economy, leaving millions of Americans to suffer. Around the world, poverty, hunger, and disease threaten global health.

We have a simple idea that can help: Add a sales tax on Wall Street trades of stocks, bonds, derivatives and other financial transaction. It’s like the sales tax you pay when buying a pair of shoes.

On Sept. 17, thousands will take to the streets of NYC to demand a Robin Hood Tax. Please help us and show your support for #RHT by donating your social media voice to the cause. 

We have a proposal in Congress - H.R. 1579. It's a small tax on one-half of 1 percent or less on trading of stocks and other financial instruments. It adds up to big money – hundreds of billions every year to heal the U.S. and global economies.

Think of how that could help our country. It could fund 9 million new jobs or save 1.7 million homes from foreclosure. It could provide guaranteed healthcare for all, help end HIV/AIDS, stop poverty and hunger and address climate change.

That’s help worth fighting for now. Thank you for your support.
