Sorry. The answer is, I don't know. Directly, 10 purchases of mutual funds (not sure how many shares each) via my 401(k) before I changed jobs, probably $600 worth. I have no idea how many trades the fund manager made in the account, though.

This is not the type of trade that Bernie is looking at. He's more interested in the billions of Robo trades being executed on the dark exchanges that are murdering our market exchange system.

A partial answer but you just couldn't resist pulling more numbers out your backside though.



An article quoting some group I've never heard of before.

We can trade in our system for any other system in any developed country and do better. In a recent rating, the U.S. system came in dead last for care and an easy first in the probability of bankrupting a family. It's a decrepit system.

Total nonsense. Ever seen what an actual Cuban hospital, for the average Cuban, actually looks like?

And my point is, when and where has he specified that the market activity of small investors won't be subject to this tax? If what you say is really true, the information has to be out there somewhere. Anyone who supports Sanders as vehemently as some of the folks on here claim to support him should have this information at their fingertips.

Unless they just picked Sanders because he talks a good game and now he's their guy. Which I'm pretty sure is the case for some of these posters. Go Bears!! I mean, Go Bernie!!

Is it your contention that you as a small investor should be excluded and not responsible for any part of the $19 trillion deficit?

As a small investor your share is going to be quite small but as a citizen of the country why is none of the debt your responsibility?

Healthcare is all about preventative care so people don't have to go to hospitals where they are methodically bankrupt. Life expectancy in Cuba is equivalent to someone in the U.S. with a fraction of the likelihood of ending up vegetating in a hospital. It all depends upon what and where people want to spend their retirement years. If the hospital is appealing and one wants to bequeath their entire life's earnings to the hospital, then the U.S system is perfect.

Exactly, you can be sure if he was offering up a juicy tax credit it would be front and center on his website. There is no tax credit.


And the inability of such rabid supporters to produce it is very odd. Fact is you can google it six different ways to Sunday and you will find NO information on this non-existent tax credit, which is as it should be lol, and why they cant produce it.

I have no idea if there will or won't be but there shouldn't be. (See above)

Why are you so eager to get out of your share of the debt?

You know as well as I know it is Congress that is going to decide the specifics.

As I said, the only thing that can be meaningful to truly change direction is to bring back Glass-Steagall. All the candidates who understand this are marginalized because that is the very, very last thing that the Billionaire Class wants because it is the precise vehicle which allows them to steal $trillions from the American people. It is the critical economic/political issue. The c only other c adoration would be to disband the Fed which would be fine with me.
