Harper Still Giving A $6 Billion Tax Cut To Banks And Big Corps - Yet Won't Tell Us Where He Will Cut Billions From The Rest Of Us
I had hoped that Stephen Harper would nix his mega billion dollar tax cut to the banks and large corporations. But oh no ... Right wing Voodoo is still in vogue. Conservatives will tell you that these tax cuts to the corporate sector 'will create jobs'. Nonsense. To date, large Canadian corporations simply sit on these 'windfall' gifts from Harper with retained earnings now at the $500 Billion dollar mark. Nothing in these tax cuts requires Big Business to create jobs ... yet Harper and Flaherty would have you believe that they do.
In the meanwhile, get ready for massive cuts to federal spending that comes to average Canadians. They didn't even have the courtesy to tell us where they are going to hit us.
