Irresponsible Tax Cut for the Wealthy

March 13, 2008

So let me get this straight… the Liberals propose a favorable change to the current RESP (Registered Education Savings Plan) rules that passes and the Conservatives turn around and want to squash the bill because it represents an irresponsible tax cut for the wealthy.

Mr. Flaherty defended the government’s approach as adequate and affordable. He said he was unconcerned about a backlash from voting parents excited by the prospect of a new tax break because only wealthier families would benefit from Mr. McTeague’s proposal.

“If you’re rich, it’ll be a popular plan,” Mr. Flaherty said.

Perhaps the backlash will not come from voting parents but from conservatives/libertarians that cringe when politicians use socialist talking points. No Comrade Flaherty, we shall never allow those nasty bourgeoisie take more money from the proletariat.

First those nasty retirees getting filthy rich off of income trusts were knocked down a notch or two now its time to go after parents trying to save for their kids education. Privileged SOBs… you go get’em Jim.

    I enjoyed the video and I fully agree with you. Though it would have been nicer witouht swearing that much.Anybody who has to swear that much to get his or her points across is rather bullying than teaching.

    Wow this really esaepsimhs all of the unanswered questions for this story arch.I was really looking forward to Basil digging up dirt on Jim and finding out what kinds of plans he had for Mary Elizibeth.The five year jump seems to be very disconnected, so much can happen in that amound of time. Marriages, babies, murders, break ups. I look forward to see what is going to be so different in the future and the reason as to why the jump was needed. I hope that it jumps back at some point too. 1 likes
