I guarantee that if business taxes were zero percent, the government would have all the money it needs and I will cherry pick statistics to prove it!*

    Well the government will never have all the money it needs because there will always be someone with their hand out....but the link between lower business (and for that matter personal taxes) and increases in government revenues is a proven relationship. Study Ronald Reagan and that hated of all premiers Mike Harris if you want to see the correlation. Those of us who have been in business and have seen growth opportunities evade us due to not having access to $$$ we have to send to the government instead, will certainly back up this article to the fullest. Those who do not understand it has no idea how the capitalist system works to create employment and value to society. Unfortunately, there are more of those than there are of experienced business folks it seems.

  2. The ultimate logic to lower is better is that zero is best. Now, that also means zero government services, which Conservatives never admit to, so we have deficits and then massive slashing and then lower taxes. Repeat and rinse. Before you know it we live in Somalia, the no tax paradise.
