Whether the "More taxes!" people will admit it or not, in the end,

it's not some corporation or whoever that pays, it's people.  And most of them aren't rich, and can't afford it.
4  The tax isn’t borne just by the traders.  The tax is shouldered by the American public.  The tax will make it more expensive for producers and consumers to manage risk.  That cost will be passed directly on to the market.  It might only be .05-.20 cents on products that have exposure to grain. When you think about all the grocery products that have exposure to grain, the tax adds a lot of money to the average grocery bill quickly.

'Free healthcare and education!' my ass; they're damn well paying for it.  Through the nose.

No, it doesn't

It's disheartening that an avowed socialist is a viable candidate for president of the United States. Socialism is a dead end. For hundreds of years, it has failed everywhere it's been adopted. The enthusiasm of our youth for the candidacy of Bernie Sanders is a symptom of our failure to educate them, not only in history, government and economics, but also basic morality.
