Death and, well... you know

Ontario's Corporate Welfare Bill: $27.7 billion... c'mon, what good conservative doesn't want tax cuts?

"Since the early 1990s, Ontario governments of every partisan stripe have used tax dollars to subsidize private for-profit businesses. For anyone who paid income tax in 2008, the cost of corporate welfare was $424 per Ontarian (or $848 per dual-income couple)."

"By lowering taxes rates for all and offering subsidies to none, Ontario’s government could concentrate its spending and tax policy where it would do the most good."

Yeah, but when a company gets taxpayer dollars, it can then kick some of that back to the politicians who gave it to them, so they can get re-elected, and give more money to the companies, who kick more money back to the pols...repeat as needed.

So, you can see why they'd prefer getting real $, not tax cuts.

The stupid thing is, lefties try to bang conservatives over the head with this, when its true conservatives who say "just cut taxes, stop the subsidies".

Don't ask me who those fake conservatives are, maybe undercover Libs?
