"We've seen on Wall Street this week what happens when the rich and powerful are allowed to do whatever they want with other people's money."
Can someone please clarify to me - what money has the business class of the United States stolen from the rest of Americans? That comment "other people's money" implies theft on a massive scale. I don't understand why no one in the media would think about asking for clarification on that comment.
As far as I'm concerned the only REAL theft I can see is in the platform of the NDP: Massive corporate tax increases that can only lead to less jobs as companies flee elsewhere. Small businesses everywhere can expect no relief under the NDP. And expect manufacturing jobs in Ontario to continue their export elsewhere. In addition I'm expecting prices to rise as businesses try to cope with increasing taxes.
A $400 a month family allowance, affordable housing, and an energy efficient home isn't going to mean beans all if you don't have a job to begin with.
