One way of looking at it is health care is a provincial responsibility. Decreasing federal taxes gives provinces more room to tax. The only real issue is having enough money for transfers that enable an equal level of care for all provinces.

The desire to pay lower taxes is not the property of the Conservatives alone. It's pretty well universal with some qualifications. For instance, we shouldn't just demand to be able to stop paying taxes without due considerations. If the decision to eliminate a tax is rational then all political persuasions will be on board with that decision.

Having said that, there's little doubt that one's political priorities will be what causes an individual's decision on any specific taxation. That's where the debate on 'socially responsible' government begins. Can you suggest some tax that should be eliminated according to a Conservative's agenda?
