This can't be pretty. Traders in general need to wake up for this one!

I am rattling some cages in DC and making preliminary preparations to go offshore... suggest you do the same...

It looks like this didn't make into the current TARP bill
All the amendments except 6 or 7 were dropped.

However the interests behind this are sticking / hiding it in every bill they can so we need to stay vigilante (sp)
They will strategically try to sneak it in as a rider on a big or "late night" bill

Hi all,

Representative Peter Defazio was on CNBC yesterday promoting his ridiculous trader tax that could put many of us out of business. Video link is here:

If you haven't already "signed" the petition against this tax, please go to this link and do so:

And also, please contact your own U.S. Representative to voice your concern.

Thanks,
Ric
