The following petition was begun by Pax Christi USA member Jack Gilroy.
Funds raised by the Inclusive Prosperity Act could be used to strengthen American families, community and economy as well as be used to support a Global Marshall Plan to fight both our own poverty and world poverty.
About 30 nations have a financial transaction tax as we had for over 50 years in the 20th century. Like the financial transaction tax of the UK, ours would be a tiny percent of 1%. Existing computerized financial transactions would make it easy to collect. Billionaires like Warren Buffet and Bill Gates strongly approve of such a fair tax.
Please contact members of the US House of Representatives and ask them to sign onto HR 1462, the Inclusive Prosperity Act.
