Lets say that we loan a trillion dollars to Europe and Japan and then we tax each transaction 5%, the government has thereby taxed you and I as we are
the ones who pay the U.S. debt for the money that was "loaned" and the money goes to the United Nations for Climate Change. Consider the timing, we
lend the money and immediately discuss the tax, maybe it is just a coincidence that we got taken advantage of and taxed by the deal. Nobody is
discussing whether or not the tax might apply to the loaning of the dollars to foreign banks and it happened days apart.
