Automated Payment Transaction Tax (APT). Have you heard of it ? I probably would not have heard of it had I not interviewed Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein. I really like what the Green Party has to say on criminal justice issues and if climate change is something to be taken seriously, the Dem/Reps are certainly not doing that. The part of the Green Party Platform concerning taxes is kind of a mess, though. There are some interesting ideas in there, but it does not hang together too well. So I am grateful to Robert Steele for pointing APT out to me. I might have more on Mr. Steele in a future post. He is quite an interesting fellow, but as with Jill Stein, I will be “leading with tax”, as we sometimes say when we go to market. APT is the entirety of Mr. Steele’s federal tax program. You might debate whether it is a good idea or whether it would really work, but there is no question about its coherence.
