Robin Hood

OWS has been around for over a month now, and so far has released its list of demands. However, they are still attacked by their opponents for not having a message or any demands. So, in order to make their message much more clear and concise, OWS has adopted a new demand: A Robin Hood Tax.

Here's a video from their site called "The Banker." It's a great representation of what the Tax would do: take 1% on all bank transactions conducted outside of the public. It would essentially allow the government to tap into the over $1 Trillion that is floating around out there in the private sector and bring some of that money in to help stimulate the public sector.
