I thought the BC-NDP might score a few cheap points by going against everything they stand for and opposing a carbon tax. Then they do this:
Just when you thought the NDP had run out of things to tax, they've found two more - death and beer.
Yes, these two bombshells rocked the NDP campaign today.
- THE NDP DEATH TAX
Recently an NDP candidate surprised all participants at an all-candidates forum when he directly endorsed the introduction of a new tax on inheritance – sometimes called a “death tax” – if the NDP were elected.
Shockingly, the NDP not only want to increase taxes on you while you’re alive, but they also want to increase taxes on you after you’re gone.
- THE NDP BEER TAX
Yesterday the NDP confirmed they will increase costs for private liquor retailers by $155-million over the next three years resulting in an average $3 increase in the price of a six-pack of beer – risking thousands of jobs in over 650 retail stores.
As British Columbians kick back with their friends and family and enjoy the Canucks' playoff run and the arrival of summer, the last thing they need to hear is that the NDP will jack up the price of beer and wine.
While people are worried about their jobs during the global economic downturn, the NDP is trying to find new ways to tax you.
