    Thatís not how our system works. It is the burden of the prosecution to establish probable cause in order to obtain a warrant or subpoena from a judge. This proposal turns that long established principle on its head.
    So when it pleases you or suits your perogative you want our system to work? Ha!!
    More banal assertions with no substance. Try again.
    Why?
    "Try again" was rhetorical, but "Why" is the question I often ask myself when I see the haphazard stuff you post.

    So you tell us, Chuck. Why?

    We gave money to my sister-in-law who hit a bad patch and had to file all manner of stuff to do a simple bank-to-bank transfer.

    So it seems that the tracking system is already in place.
    Most banks have software that pops out suspicious transactions. Consider it "reputational risk": no bank wants to be named as having held funds for a drug cartel. That's different. Reporting small transactions to the Treasury Department is a different thing. It might be possible to pull a copy of each transaction out of ACH.

    They don't want to be named, but quite a few do it. Deutsche Bank seems to be a frequent offender and there are banks in London that actively court shady money. As long as it's big.

    Well, yes, Chip. I was quoting a common saying in banking. It's why banks have "know your customer" software. All that is usually focused small accounts. All over the world, poor people travel to jobs and want to wire money home. Banks have wanted to get into the "wire it home" business, but often the customer "back home" has no bank account. As best I remember, that business was called Workers' Remittances, but I don't have much documentation anymore.

    The other business is called Anti-Money Laundering (AML). That's pretty much what the name would suggest: a large piece of software by which a bank runs a "black-list" of known-bad "entities" and a "white-list" of the known-good.

    All of that is involved in Electronic Bank Account Management (eBAM). My old company, SWIFT, developed the message standards by which banks operate an eBAM system. It is a tricky operation: banks want to open accounts electronically, as a way to reduce the staff-cost of having prospective customers open accounts at a bank brank, but banks, also, do not want to be found to have opened accounts for a collection of heroin suppliers hiding in the mountains of Southeast Asia. Greed meets caution.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBAM

    Banks, though, may tolerate crooked deals if they are huge. See the sort of thinking that drove the world financial system off a cliff in 2008, as described by Michael Lewis in "The Big Short", or his essay, on which the book (and its movie) were based: "The End of Wall Street As We Know It": https://www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk/~pel/mi...eets-Boom.html

    The Post says that Democrats will modify the bill to focus more narrowly on rich people who make their money OUTSIDE of drawing a salary.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday will unveil a scaled-back version of a Biden administration proposal to crack down on wealthy tax cheats after conservative groups and the bank industry raised major privacy concerns, three people with knowledge of the coming announcement said.

    Initially, the Department of Treasury and Senate Democrats had proposed requiring financial institutions to provide the Internal Revenue Service with additional information on bank accounts with more than $600 in annual deposits or withdrawals.

    After a backlash, the new proposal will instead require the provision of additional information for accounts with more than $10,000 in annual deposits or withdrawals, a measure Democrats have been considering for weeks but have not formally endorsed, the people said.

    The revised version of the bank reporting proposal will also weaken its scope by exempting all wage income from counting toward the $10,000 threshold withdrawal, intending to ensure it applies to only larger account holders, the people said. The Biden administration has signed off on the changes and is expected to support the new plan, a potentially key source of new revenue to pay for Democratsí multi-trillion-dollar economic package. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a matter not yet made public.
    The Democratic Party listens to Kaz.

    That is $10,000 from payments in or out, other than salary. See the Post article. Several things are already reported, such as dividends and payments from a 401K.

    How much should the rich pay? Isnít equal fair?

    Is it wrong to use every legal means to keep money away from this government?
