Aaron Klein, one of the truly unhinged voices that the Worldnetdaily is constantly promoting, has a hysterically overblown article about the Robin Hood Tax. Of course, it’s all about George Soros and COMMUNISTS! The commies are coming, the commies are coming! This is not a repeat from 1981. Or 1951.
George Soros-funded economist Jeffrey Sachs this week briefed members of Congress on the so-called Robin Hood tax, which calls for a small fee on Wall Street trades.
The Robin Hood tax was proposed by U.S. politicians closely tied to the country’s largest socialist organization, WND has learned…
Sachs’ address to Congress on Wednesday came the same day 200 advocates of the Robin Hood tax marched up Constitution Avenue in Washington D.C., reported the Communist Party USA’s online newspaper.
Sachs has been a long-time proponent of the Robin Hood tax. He is a Columbia University economist who crafted a controversial economic “shock therapy.” Sachs is a key member of the Institute for New Economic Thinking, or INET.
Soros is INET’s founding sponsor, with the billionaire having provided a reported $25 million over five years to support INET activities.
And it goes on like this, interminably. Commies, commies, commies. Virtually no discussion on whether it’s actually a good idea or not. They do claim that it will “destroy the economy.” Seriously? It’s a tax of less than 1/2 of 1% on every Wall Street security transaction. It would generate an estimated $350 billion a year in new revenues. Do they seriously think anyone who isn’t delusional to believe that this would destroy the economy and lead to communism?
