06/14/2005 Archived Entry: "Proposed global tax on airline tickets"
Thanks to Gordon P. for the following heads-up on a vote Ron Paul plans to push in Congress today: namely, opposition to a global tax on airline tickets that amounts to an unprecedented U.N. tax on rich nations, especially the States. Click "more" for details....
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED
The push for a global tax is stronger than ever. The term might be "global," but make no mistake -- the target for the tax is America's deep pockets.
Just three days ago during the G8 summit, France and Germany proposed a global tax on airline tickets. The globalists loved it. Hans Eichel Germany's finance minister stated, "No one in the G8 [including the U.S.] has said anything against it. It's now on the agenda."
The push for a global tax is now so strong and so real that Congressman Ron Paul will attempt to stop it tonight. Congressman Paul will offer an amendment to the Science, State, Justice, Commerce Appropriations Act of 2006 that would prohibit any U.S. funds from being used to develop, publicize, implement or impose any U.N. tax or fee on any U.S. citizen.
If any member of the U.S. House doesn't vote in favor of Congressman Paul's amendment, he or she supports a U.N. global tax.
Congressman Paul's amendment will be voted on tonight or possibly tomorrow morning. We have little time to rally support, but rally we must.
In a letter to his House colleagues asking for their support, Congressman Paul stated, "At least five times in the last decade, the United Nations has held summits where the `problem' of how to develop a global tax was a major item of discussion. The United Nations has long wished to carve out a way to finance its activities independent of the dues of member states."
Germany's finance minister Hans Eichel didn't hear any opposition to a global tax from the G8 political elites a few days ago. Well, it's time that Mr. Eichel and others of his kind hear opposition from Americans: "No U.N. tax!"
