Dion 's 'deep' corporate tax cuts build the road the fascism

Who thought that Dion would be so openly, what's the word here, neoliberal?

Liberal Leader Stephane Dion pledged to reduce the federal corporate tax rate on Friday to further bolster economic growth and fuel competition with foreign markets.During a speech at the Economic Club of Toronto, Dion said the previous Liberal government lowered the rate from 28 per cent to 19 per cent. [...]

"What I have said for our economic prosperity, what will be especially important is to have a competitive tax system and to have a way to decrease our corporate tax, deeper than what was planned," Dion said after his speech at a downtown hotel.

Right-wing corporatism would be another way to describe the direction, I suppose. And we all know how that story finished.

And to change the universe into a liberal makeover, their "progressive" corporate tax cuts! Slap me in the head.
I guess the corporations need some social justice, liberal style :)

Now I will give some good old rural anology - this dog won't hunt!

"Progressive" tax cuts, how inventive. I never considered the Liberal Party to be progressive of nature: how wrong I was!
