Mike Harris laughing as Libs adopt his Tax Cuts

Mike Harris - Former Conservative Premier
It appears the Ontario Liberals after being in power for eight years, run up the largest deficits in years, now claim they have a remedy, a remedy they told Mike Harris would never work.  Mike Harris must be having a good laugh over this one.The Liberals in Ontario want to slash Corporate taxes.  The Liberals had a different song book for many years...

Dwight Duncan has said a lot about corporate tax cuts, for years...

On the record...

“We reject their philosophy of corporate tax cuts for profitable companies. That’s not going to benefit a company that’s going to lose money this year.” – Hansard, Mar. 17, 2008

“We don’t agree with Mr. Flaherty and the leadership he has taken over there in terms of corporate tax cuts.” – Hansard, Mar. 26, 2008

"That’s probably why the federal Conservative government has done nothing for our manufacturing sector. They gave broad-based corporate tax cuts again. Well, if you’re not making money, you’re not paying taxes, so you’re not going to benefit.” – Hansard, Dec. 6, 2007 
Dwight Duncan - Ontario Liberal Party
They ought to forgo the corporate tax cuts. Our tax rates are competitive now on the corporate side. Forgo those tax cuts, invest in education and health care, and certainly don’t run up a deficit again or further increase the debt, which the Harris government has done in order to pay for these tax cuts.” – Hansard, Nov. 28, 2001
“We reject your solution of corporate tax cuts for big oil companies.” – Hansard, Apr. 24, 2008
