Just when you thought the NDP had taxed it all, they have decided to tax Manitobans when they vote. If the NDP's Bill 37 passes, political parties in Manitoba will receive $1.25 for each vote that they received. That little measure will cost the taxpayers about $2 million. Funny how the NDP's new little welfare program for political parties missed being included in their 2007 election platform. Perhaps the idea of spending more tax on political parties didn't poll well.
One of the more offensive aspects of the bill is that it indexes the vote tax fee to inflation. In other words, the NDP want to make sure their little party fundraising scheme doesn't get eroded by inflation. Too bad they haven't indexed tax brackets to inflation in Manitoba. Glad to see they have their priorities straight.
