We all do. A good chunk of our taxes goes to pay interest on money borrowed decades ago. We get zero value from it. New taxes are only popular for those who aren't paying them.

I don't know, that's my question as well. Eliminating the sales tax for a year would be good for the economy but how big and how long is the hangover going to be?

We are already 13 billion in the hole this year.

Since the vast majority of most of BC only has one home, of course, it'd be a popular tax.  And effective apparently. 

Cutting PST is an incredibly stupid idea, both economically and politically, but I'm totally cool with it because if this is the best they can come up with, it plays great for the NDP. 

Anyone who cares about PST (businesses or higher earners who are still making big purchases) was pretty much likely to vote Liberal anyway.
