News flash: Centre for Policy Alternatives wants higher taxes

I want to let all my "big government" friends know that I have a copy of the CCPA report arguing that higher taxes make a country better. I haven't read it yet, and I can't really say I will, but yes I am aware of it. So you need not send me an email.

I can actually predict what the report will say. It will say that people are happier in Sweden and they have lower incidents of child poverty than marginally lower-tax Canada. They will ignore that fact that Sweden hasn't created a net new private sector job since the 50s and their unemployment rate is probably quadruple that of the US.

Really? Socialists and taxes? Who'd have guessed it?

Can anyone determine whether the CCPA has ever championed cutting any sort of program spending or any measure of reducing the tax load?
