Harper and tax cuts do not be deceived

So we see Harper going on about what a great financial manager he is and cheerleading more tax cuts to deceive the stupid, greedy and those with no social consciousness. Less taxes mean broken infrastructure, less food inspectors and more inequality etc. It means that if you buy into it the Cdn social fabric continues to erode while the corporations and the wealthy in Canada reap all the benefits of that erosion. Don’t be fooled by the pittance the tax cuts might bring you. Our parents were willing to pay higher taxes because it brought them employment insurance they could actually access, it brought them a medical system that did not bankrupt them when they used it and access to it in a timely manner and it brought them a safe food system and relatively unpolluted and protected water systems. It brought roads without potholes and bridges that did not fall down. Harper is selling snake oil. Beware.
