A conservative from Canada called Rush Limbaugh today and was quite passionate about his opinion of where Canada is politically. He says that Canada is about 30 years ahead of the U.S. in terms of liberal development, largely due to the leadership of Trudeau. I believe he called Rush to warn us about the folly of liberalism. Perhaps the Canadians on this board would like to comment on some of the not so nice things that he had to say: He said everybody is "working for" the government in Canada. Meaning they are getting soaked in taxes. Until he recently lost his job, his wife and he were making $105k (Canadian$) per year. Right off the top the government took away $30k. On everything they buy, they pay 15% to the government. He has to pay an annual car fee of $500. He had to pay a whopping $40k for a Chrystler minivan. When he bought it he was taxed 3 different times on the purchase. (GSC, PSC, and something else) When he went to the doctor for an accident when he got some metal in his hand he spent 15 hours in the waiting room before he was attended to. He stated that there are medical caps on the wages of those who work in the medical field. Doctors and nurses are leaving the medical field in droves. He told us the dirty little secret why Canada has low-cost drug prescriptions. It is because Canada lets the U.S. do all the R&D which is very costly. Thus Canada can afford to place a price cap on the generic prescription drugs they buy. The CBC is referred to in Canada by many as the Communist Broadcasting Company. This government outlet does not want to allow U.S. news reports. He also called to thank the U.S. for our defense of his country. He mentioned that they only have about 10,000 troops which is less than the 15,000 firefighters & police we have just in NYC just for comparison's sake. He and his wife are seriously thinking of moving to the U.S.
