BC Budget: MSP premiums reduced by 50% for two million British Columbians — 3 Comments

  1. Not impressed at all.

    They’re the ones who raised it so high in the first place at the same time as they lowered the provincial income tax rate. They had to find some way to bring in more money after they lowered taxes so they went for far higher service fees, which affect ordinary people on many things, not just BC Medical.

    The fact is that their beloved tax cut actually cost ordinary people much more, but it gave a huge break to their rich buddies. Now that the BC Medical flat tax has become too high for the average person to afford, they’ve decided to make themselves look good just before an election and cut it back… but not until next year.

    If they should get re-elected, I would not be surprised if they say they can’t afford the msp cut and rescind it.
