Why tax cuts for the rich are so stupid 86% Posted Nov 2017

Why tax cuts for the rich are so stupid

Comment: 7 days ago

Back in the middle 80's, Canadian journalist and author Linda McQuaig wrote a book entitled," Behind Closed Doors...How The Rich Won Control of Canada's Tax System...And Ended Up Richer" Viking Press.

A short time later the Journal on Business Ethics published a review on the book. It seems Corporations and the Wealthy should be paying their fair share of taxes.

Canada's Linda McQuig,, back in 1987, wrote a book entitled," Behind Closed Doors - How The Rich Won Control of Canada's Tax System...And Ended Up Richer(Viking Press)

Now....30 years later, the rich are not only controlling the tax system(lowering it from 49% in 1948 to 15% today) here in Canada...they're moving huge amounts of money "off shore"  to avoid paying any taxes here in Canada.

The owners and THEIR underlings have to conduct business of hiring in a open and public meeting place  and with parents of the actor or actress present. If a lawyer can be afforded and present by the actor or actress ALONG WITH the parents of the actor or actress...all the better.

What is a groundscraper?

Office space? What about an aging population? Three stories is allot easier to get down from in the case of a fire than 30 stories. Less travel time to the ground. One could probably install stairs and very gradual escalators and fewer elevators.

"When, we had equitable and fair Corporate taxation, the Canadian Health Care System covered ALL Canadians Health Care needs(1970-82)" Since 1982, our health care system has gone...down hill. Canadians only receive 46% coverage today because of a extreme reduction of the Federal Rate of Corporate Taxation. Read Linda McQuaigs 1987 book ," Behind Closed Doors - How The Rich Won Control of Canada's Tax System...And Ended Up Richer" Viking Press

http://www.umanitoba.ca/cm/cmarchive/vol16no4/revbehindcloseddoors.html

Canada's Federal Rate of Corporate Taxation has fallen from 49% in 1948 to today's 17%. Canadian Social Programme's has lost billions of dollars from it's programmes.
