We already know that Obama has dreams over installing a European style economy killer VAT tax in the United States, now Obama expressed his desire to tax the banks (link is to Reuters Article) in order to supposedly pay back the financial assistance. Let's assume the banks do pay it back via this tax. Will it go away? Oh yeah sure. Once a tax is put on something ... it will only go uuuuuuuuup.
It won't be the banks paying the Obama bank tax, it will be the bank's customers, like for example, people who need loans. Now I'm not an expert in this stuff, but, if one were to go about fixing the foreclosure crisis in this country, credit should be made more available? Maybe it's just me, but putting taxes on companies would seeeeeeeeeem to make their products cost MORE.
Anyways, this is just another reason Obama is in the twilight zone and doing everything opposite. Like, on the diplomatic front, he's been abrasive to Israel and Britain; while trying to kiss up to the Arabs and Iranians.
