Dalton McGuinty Is So Out Of Touch He Compares HST To War And Depression

TORONTO, May 8 /CNW/ -

    
    NEWS:

Dalton McGuinty is so out of touch that yesterday in Ottawa he compared the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers and the Great Depression to paying his $3 billion HST tax grab.

Earlier this week in a cleansing moment of honesty he finally admitted what the PC Caucus has been saying for months when he confessed the HST will be a punishing tax on families and seniors.

Unbelievably, he has now trivialized soldiers, veterans and their families by likening his HST to the sacrifices of soldiers. Dalton McGuinty has become so disconnected from reality he believes paying more taxes is comparable to war and the depression.

The HST is one of many tax hikes and fee increases that Ontario families are now forced to pay to fund Dalton McGuinty's runaway spending, waste and scandal.

- As reported by the Ottawa Citizen: "The Premier said each generation has challenges and sacrifices that have to be made for the common good.
