...Be A Sham.
Update: 6pm Budget Day...Why it is, indeed, a sham
First, the real thing, brought to you by the MoCo:
The idea of collecting medical premiums is dated but one that persists because governments don't like raising taxes, especially not for the wealthier portion of the population, says one health policy expert...
Then there's this, from the Deflector Spike Word Salad Spinner-In-Chief herself:
..."Here is the thing about the MSP system. It is antiquated. It is old, and the way people pay for it generally doesn't make a whole ton of sense, so therefore it is really hard to try and make the sensible changes that we need to do."...
In other words, despite the small amount of relief that will come for a sliver of single parent families later today, this is really all about the small percentage of folks in this province that are well off.
Which has me wondering what it would take to get the majority of the BC Liberal's electoral base to understand that they have been voting against their own best interests, lo these many years.
Did someone say something about a 'Club'?
