The new budget lets Canadians keep more of their money -- but Rick Smith of the Broadbent Institute isn't happy about it.
He told me, "This budget is great if you like inequality, or if you're one of the richest 5% of Canadians."
I challenge his contention that the budget takes money from the middle class and gives it to the rich.
Smith insists that his Institute doesn't actually object to all tax cuts, but explains why he objects to the income-splitting plan.
We spar on other issues. He fumbles a bit when confronted with the facts on global warming, for instance.
Who do you think won the debate? Let me know!
