This sounds vaguely familiar...

"McGuinty vows Liberals won't raise taxes if re-elected". Uh-huh.

While the Health Tax won't be McGuinty's version of the Poll Tax, it should and will hurt him with lower middle class voters. Yes, Ontario had a deficit, how big depends who you ask, but he rammed in this tax without consultation and in such a way that some employers had to swallow it due to old collective agreement dating from the OHIP Premium. The tax discriminates against work, since it taxes two lower incomes more than one large one.

I don't object to higher taxes - I object to stupid ones, and especially ones which entail zero improvement in services delivered.
