Liberal fiscal plan released --- Harper tax breaks on the table

Brian LilleyArchive

The Federal Liberals released their fiscal plan over the weekend.

We know that the Liberal platform is the most expensive of all three political parties and we know he still hasn't explained how the liberals are going to pay for these expensive promises without raising your taxes.

Unless, they take away the tax breaks brought in by the Harper government.

It's safe to say, whether Trudeau takes power on his own or through a coalition with the NDP, more of your money will be going to the government.

J. Micheal Mccutcheon, I’m sure Canadian’s will find their tax load much easier to manage if comrade Trudeau gets in. Even though he’s said in plain English that he is going to run a deficit, you think your taxes won’t go up with Trudeau’s expanding debt loading plan? Sorry that doesn’t make sense, unless you’re on welfare.

For any thinking Canadian, October 19th’s ’ballot question" can only be "Will I endorse, reward or reject Stephen Harper for adding $140+ Billion to our National Debt over the past 9+ years?

‘$140 Billion’ is over 20% of all of Canada’s National Debt that’s accumulated ‘since Confederation in 1867’, 148-years ago.

For a Canadian family of four, it’s equivalent to Stephen loading them with additional, monthly payments, to be paid ‘forever’, on a $16,000 ‘family car loan’ for an automobile that they will never see, nor ever drive.

Today, above all other political issues, this additional $140 Billion of Harper debt is quietly hitting all breathing Canadians in their pocketbooks.

Boutique credits do not amount anything near 100 billion?! How absurd. Actually Brian, the $2000 tax break for children is already gone. It was replaced by the new UCB changes. Look back in history, and taxes on the middle class has come primarily from liberal governments.

Bravo Zulu,
Although this is relatively old news buried in archives there is a faint glimmer of hope, there is discontent and dissent among Liberal ranks and members, perhaps that will take on a life of its own to counter the new wave Liberal ideology?: (2 examples of what I came across in a search)

Bravo Zulu, how did you come across that ipolitcs site? Very left wing to say the least, almost militant in some of the articles.
commented 2015-09-29 13:50:02 -0400
So that’s what a lifetime of “recreational drugs” do to a person’s sense of reality.

Indeed, very scary Bravo Zulu.

Junior seems to copycat everything that dear old dad did. Even the book written about dear old dad, shows that Justin has copied him at every chance. Can you just imagine this man-child as the leader of Canada? It makes me sick thinking about it.

Scary doesn’t begin to describe that!
But what’s worse, far worse, are all the weak-minded fools who buy into that ideology without question or reserve…
Commie flakes like Pierre Lite are a dime a dozen, those low-information voters and useful idiot dupes who eat up his tripe are legion…and these voters are capable of breeding.
I couldn’t actually read much of that extremely offensive and nauseating brown-nosery by the toady Harris, but in staying true to the dictates of “Know Your Enemy”, I will gird my loins and attempt to read it all…

Every Canadian citizen no matter how much they make pay taxes and in turn should benefit from all tax credits and programs the government implements. Think about it, the wealthy pay the most tax and to say they cannot have a child benefit or other tax credits is just plain wrong. Again, socialists divide people, all citizens are to be treated equally and all should have access to all government programs, period. Who has the right to say that in Canada we treat people differently, oh yeah, Trudeau Jr. he did say that all Canadians are not equal, socialists dream.

The kid with the canoe – trying to look like daddy?

Both of them – one dead and one alive – are azzholes.

One brought multiculturalism to Canada to tear it apart and the other wants to bring islam to Canada to tear it apart.

Neither one of them could balance a budget

Both of them want to spend other people money until we all go broke.

Trudopes – we barely survived one and the new one will be ten times worse.

Dave Bainard…I said whatever percentage it took……triming is secondary….

G Craig Your idea would be fine if Canada had a closed economy. But, if all the government had to depend on was a GST type tax, then things like the “underground economy” would prosper. Not to mention what extra controls things like cross border shopping would entail. Or as what Greece has experienced—people won’t pay the taxes.
commented 2015-09-28 22:13:10 -0400
Charleton G….what I advocate is radical…..eliminate income tax altogether and increase taxes on consumption to whatever percentage is necessary to raise the required revenues.

You then cease to penalize entreprenurialship and economic expansion….you cease to punish prudent investment….you cease to penalize overtime and promotion.

The job of the finance minister becomes easier because addressing inequities in taxation policy become correctable through exemption and rebate.

Does anyone remember what his 32-point plan was?
No, no, don’t look it up.
Be honest, do you remember what those 32 points were?
Does Trudeau-Lite himself even remember?
Poor little Justin, even creepy Suzuki is now calling him a twerp.

He was missing in action at the Great Fiscal Unveiling (the Great F U) on Saturday. That didn’t stop the Communist Broadcasting Corporation from interspersing the Great F U with images of Trudeau 2.0 to give the impression that he was somehow “there”.

So, he’ll get to start with a balanced budget.
Borrow $146.5 billion more that he’ll spend on “new” stuff.
Run deficits year after year except magically have a little “surplus” in the final year.
How/when does he pay back the $146.5 billion (plus the accumulation of three years of deficits) that he originally added to the debt?
Do we forget about that when we hear about the little surplus in year #4?

and all this is to “lift the well-being of the middle class”, the same group that recently became the wealthiest middle class in the world. And oh yes, as was explained at the Great F U, “to raise the morale of public servants”.

Poor little Justin, he’s just not ready to be leader of the opposition.
Vote A-B-C

I was a big fan of a flat tax rate. It is unconstitutional to tax people differently and pits one class against others.

Somebody should show the simpleton how to hold a paddle. It’s a paddle stupid, not a tennis racket.

No surprise – the socialist parties in Canada financially slaughter the middle class every time they get in by raising taxes and making goobermint much larger and more intrusive in our lives.

This has been and will always be the case with the socialist parties – liberal/ndp. Both parties are the same – they lie to get elected and then financially rape and pillage average Canadians.

pig liberal jawn macallum needs to leave politics – he sounds senile.
