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. The Investing in Our Future Act (H.R. 755) introduced by Representative Pete Stark (D-Calif.) 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.
