Democrats are set to endorse a levy on securities sales when they meet at their party convention later this month.

The draft party platform includes an endorsement of a financial transactions tax, a policy that it says will help establish a financial system that “works for all Americans, not just a handful of billionaires.”

“We support a financial transactions tax on Wall Street to curb excessive speculation and high-frequency trading, which has threatened financial markets,” the draft document states. “We acknowledge that there is room within our party for a diversity of views on a broader financial transactions tax.”
