Thomas Mulcair’s tax promise

The man who wants to be Prime Minister of Canada is making a lot of blunders in public.

The man who wants to be Prime Minister of Canada is making a lot of blunders in public. He says that his childcare plan will pay out $1 million total, $15 per day in childcare spaces over 10 years yet in reality if he would review his notes, that NDP childcare plan is over eight years. He says that the present corporation tax rate is between 12 and 13 per cent, yet in reality it is at 15 per cent. He proposes to raise the rate in the range of 18 to 19 per cent. It is amazing how a lot of Canadian taxpayers are wanting change and thinking of Thomas Mulcair to be that change without ever thinking of the consequences of that thought. Many taxpayers work for corporations, and if Thomas Mulcair is successful at becoming prime minister, many taxpayers will be heading to the unemployment office to make a claim for employment insurance. The reason for this is that if the corporation tax goes up, the corporation has to find other means to cover for this increase. That would mean an immediate decrease in labour costs, which equates to a layoff slip. Voting for a change to put yourselves out of work. You call that smart thinking? Have to have your heads examined, big time. Once laid off, is Thomas Mulcair going to find you another job? Remember there are always two sides to the ledger. Think before marking your voting ballot.  Remember there is no such thing as a perfect world, which is why the facts and reality is that you cannot have your cake and eat it too.
