Stephen Harper: "We need to raise taxes"

Stephen Harper: "We need to raise taxes."

Quite the little tax cutter we have in Stephen Harper. Let's see the record:
  • raised income taxes in his first month in office

  • taxed income trusts in his first year despite his explicit promise not to, causing seniors and investors to lose millions and millions, including life savings

  • added a job killing payroll tax increase

  • added an air tax that Harper had promised to eliminate because it was "crippling the industry"

  • Harper Minister of Finance, Jim Flaherty, the one who said a GST cut was a pretty dumb idea, said he "would never presume to say never to a tax increase".

  • Stephen Harper: "We need to raise taxes."

  • All this from a guy who said he would never increase taxes. Is there anything Harper says that you can trust or believe?

    1. Came across this new spoof of the notoriously misleading Tory attack ad. It's pretty damn funny. Do with as you will.
