Advice To Federal Tories: Run On Income Splitting

Tax breaks for couples wealthy enough to live their lives in the Biblical manner.  Forget any silly economic "principle" used to justify the move; follow the money.  The same people who 15 years ago were pushing for a repeal of the metric system are now going to get favorable tax treatment because they are better than the rest of us.  They're making society a more stable place.  Families with two working parents, single parent families, childless couples...we're all  apparently just dicking around.  And of course we know where The Select are geographically concentrated, don't we?   Money from our cities and towns will be diverted to places like Big Valley, Alberta.  Shoveled out of the backs of pick-up trucks with pitch-forks.

Sure, run on that.
