Tax Wall street !
Ah, the oligarch's, back in the news again. They are keeping the unemployment rate right where it will do its most damage to the American economy. Full employment will give the workers too much power, and too high wages, as far as they are concerned. History does back up their fears, and all oligarch's know that they must fear an enlightened citizenry. We do need to start a nation wide social movement to tax Wall Street. We pay taxes on what we make and spend and so should the oligarch's. We need full employment, and we will not get that until we build our bargaining power as citizen's. Until we have a justice system that prosecutes criminal actions regardless of wealth or power we will be in their control. Our government will not do these things unless all of the citizen's push them to do these things.
