Tax Me I’m Canadian!
A Taxpayer’s Guide to Your Money and How Politicians Spend It
by Mark Milke
In this smartly argued and witty account, Mark Milke explains the other surety in life besides death—how politicians spend the tax dollars of Canadians! Learn what the Fathers of Confederation thought Canada should look like; how Americans created many of Canada’s taxes; about the billions in unnecessary taxes blown on subsidies to business; and how monopolistic government employees’ unions can break public services.
There are no sacred cows in Tax Me I’m Canadian! The author details why more tax dollars won’t solve the woes of Aboriginal peoples and how the welfare state is a debt-induced illusion. Fortunately, Canadians can do something about all of this. In examples from Canada’s own history and from citizen-friendly Switzerland, Milke notes how the demand for taxes and the need of citizens not to be gouged is balanced in countries that treat their citizens—and their money, with respect.
