U.N. Internet Tax Dead - For Now


www.foxnews.com

A controversial United Nations plan to impose consumer taxes on such things as Internet activity and paying bills online in order to drastically restructure the world drug industry hit a wall of disagreement on Friday, and is likely dead -- for now.

Instead, they agreed to create a new “consultative expert working group” to examine all the issues involved one more time, and report back to the next World Health Assembly in a year’s time.

“This is a ‘Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $200’ resolution,” said a U.S. participant at the Assembly. “My guess is that it will take one or two years or possibly longer.”

But the capstone of the deal for Western consumers was the “innovative financing” suggested by the original working group, which the experts hoped would raise “tens of billions” of dollars for the restructuring effort. Among the ideas suggested:

-- a "digital" or "bit" tax on Internet activity, which could raise "tens of billions of U.S. dollars";
-- a 10 percent tax on international arms deals, "worth about $5 billion per annum";
-- a financial transaction tax, citing a Brazilian levy that was raising some $20 billion per year until it was canceled (for unspecified reasons);
-- an airline tax that already exists in 13 countries and has raised some $1 billion.


UN is at it shenanigans again. They have consistently tried to promote a global tax in various ways. They succeeded in implementing a Airline Tax a while ago but these goons don't give up.

They are going to wait another 2 year for some for R&D to offer a better scheme to implement such global greed that the UN has become accustomed too.

We can clearly see the world of Help UN did in Haiti with their Docked LOVE BOATS that catered only to those employed by the UN while the Haitians slept in muddy infested waters.

Terrible. It will be a never ending battle for our children and grandchildren fighting to keep the internet free from one of the most corrupt institutions/ shadow government in existence.

The children of the UN members will jump in their parent's jobs and carry on the whip to the 'profane masses' and this crapola will never end, unless we end them first.

The UN is overrated- They haven't stopped a genocide since... Well never.

They need to get real jobs.
