Jim Flaherty: We Are The 1%
No, taxing the wealthy can't generate enough $ to kill the deficit and fund all the social programs we might like. Everyone's going to have cut back and put their shoulder to the grind-stone and etc. if we as a nation want to do all that stuff. The point is: from the moral point of view have the rich done enough, and should they do more in the future to help we folk, who mow their lawns and do their taxes and administer their Botox treatments, out of the Financial Crisis they created. Flaherty and Co. are on the wrong side of that argument. The NDP gets it; hopefully the LPoC does too, and will offer up some economic populism in the very near future.
