CommentsAs usual the NDP are pandering to their voting block. You know those people who don't pay any taxes or very little, but take a lot of government assistance. Takers love it when their elected version of government says stuff, like TAX THE RICH, make them pay more so that I can take it from you. I don't pay a dammed thing but I'm more than happy to see you people working pay up.
Greece, France, Germany, Netherlands, the UK, Spain, Portugal. All these places had NDP types of government for the last few decades. And all of them are hurting because they pandered to the lowest common denominators of society. Life is wonderful in their world where year after year they scream, MAKE THE RICH PAY MORE. Then you have a complicit liberal MSM who love pandering to the NDP or Liberals. Cozying up to these OWS types who pay nothing and take an unfair share of government services. You now have the Liberals/NDP'ers super funding the Early Education and All Day Kindergarten. We couldn't afford it, yet whack! We took it in the kisser by the "oh by the way did you know my wife is a teacher too". Pandering to scoop the female vote, and make the general public pay more and more so that liberals can hyper fund the Teachers Union with new recruits. McGuinty and Horwath live in a world of entitlements and the answer to their lofty ideals is always the same. Whack the tax payers.
Ask yourself this, at what point in wages does a NDP designate a person as "rich"? You will be astounded, in one recent story I read. The NDP claim the barrier between low income and rich is 39 grand per year. Cross over 39 grand and the NDP believe you don't pay enough in taxation.

ONTARIO HOME ENERGY RETROFITS (save jobs, lower bills, generates net-positive tax revenues)
McGuinty and Harper budgets devastate Ontario energy savings industry.
Hundreds of Ontario energy savings companies will be forced to downsize, lay off staff, or shut down altogether. Ontario's energy savings industry will be devastated by long-term job losses.
Ontario is now the only Canadian province without an active home energy retrofit incentive program.
Renewing the Ontario Home Energy savings program (OHESP) will Save Energy First, reduce our energy bills, protect the environment, generate net-positive tax revenues, and create and protect jobs in all Ontario communities.
Public support for retrofit incentive programs is strong. According to a recent Ipsos Reid poll undertaken for the Ontario Real Estate Association, 92 per cent of Ontario homeowners think government should create more incentives for homeowners to make environmentally friendly and energy efficient renovations to their homes.
Energy efficiency should be at the top of Ontario's energy and jobs agenda, not the bottom.
