Update: And a not so good idea: the PRD is proposing a 15 percent tax on junk food, which I can only imagine is just as regressive as the 2 percent proposal, and is far more regressive than the above proposal.

Good Idea from the PRD
Now this is what should come to mind when people think of the PRD: the party's Senate bloc has a proposal to tax earnings from Mexico's stock exchange. The party's fiscal plan does not include the 2 percent consumption tax, and it's unclear from the above article what would be the difference in revenue from one versus the other.
