Hi. I have seen a few oppupy cities saying that they support the Robin Hood Tax, and it concerns me. This tax would tax unjust banking practices and use that $ at a slush fund for bailing out banks. So in other words it just lets them carry on with their irresponsible banking & investment practices and the gov't would get to pat themselves on the back for looking like they are doing something about it, when in fact tehy are just enabling it to happen. No! What we need is to stop these bad practices from happening in the first place! Don't let the gov't try to placate the movement with these deceiving tax systems. Just because it's called the Robin Hood Tax doesn't mean it has anything to do with taxing the rich and giving it to the poor. Take a closer look!!
