To quote one of my favourite movies: "it's like a nightmare, and it keeps getting worse".

When you pay more for taxes and your income doesn't go up then the amount you have for savings decreases.

No big shock there.

Yeah, we could be making $2 a year tax free if we saved those carbon taxes...

Maybe the wild non-stop increases in the cost of every single one of life's basics over the last fifty years have something to do with it. Hmmm, we need a tax hike to cover the costs of a commission to study this phenomena.

We have those multimillion dollar commissions.
They told us food prices went up 1% when meat doubled.
Told us how much we saved when oil went to 1/3 it's value and gas went down to 4/5th.
Saved us with regulations so those $25,000 cell phone bills are only in the news weekly instead of daily.
The $100 ladder I got when the dollar was at 90c is now $229 'on sale' with the buck at 75c.

But NOOOO it's all about taxes....

But there's hope on the horizon
Those MSP premiums the BC Libs doubled over the last few years will be cut in half NEXT year, if we re-elect them in May!

Except there's been near zero inflation across the board over the past 20 years. Your perception is a misconception. And that should be a rap lyric.


That is a completely BS statement http://www.inflation.eu/inflation-rates ... anada.aspx

clearly the average inflation rate over the past 20 years is ~2%

once again you have demonstrated a complete lack of basic financial literacy. You really are making yourself look foolish.
