Ontario Minority Government Likely Means Health Tax Cut

The NDP don't have a long track record of proposing tax cuts. However, in the Ontario election they know a good issue when they see it.

Howard Hampton is promising eliminate the health tax for many and reduce it for some.
The NDP would offer a maximum rebate of $450 to Ontarians earning between $48,000 and $80,000. The tax would be eliminated altogether for about 1.5 million workers earning under $48,000 a year. This is the tax that Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty imposed when he broke his 2003 eleciton promise not to raise taxes without a referendum.

While it would be fairer to scrap the tax for everyone, NDP talk of a tax cut is a refreshing change.

Only the Liberals refuse to scrap, kill or abolish the tax.

The PCs, the NDP, and the Greens all are promising substantial relief from this health tax. John Tory's PCs are the only party promising to scrap it altogether.

So,with the prospect of a minority goverment any coalition will necessarily include a party who is promising relief from the hated health tax.

Thank Goodness because overtaxed Ontarions deserve it.
