"5. Taxation, price increases and caps on energy are inherently regressive and cause great damage."
When multi-millionaires like John Kerry suggest increasing gasoline taxes by 50 cents per gallon so that poor people will be forced to use less
gasoline (while he continues to fly in private jets and be driven in large cars), I get angry.
What do you think of these 10 points? Are there any with which you disagree? Are there any you think are especially important?

In many ways, increasing the taxation on fuel is penalising the wealthy as they tend to use much more fuel than the poor. That said, a GST does have
some advantages in that the wealthy cannot easily avoid it. No GST on basic commodities like bread and milk would assist all.
