    Now, without the usual deflection, please explain how you concluded that SalesServiceGuy has "lived off the government dime for most of his adult life" .
    You made the statement, let's all hear your reasoning for it.
    Personally I can't wait to marvel in your brilliant deduction power.

    You and he are Canadian. You like free healthcare. You like free government cheese. In other news, water is wet.

    ... in other words, you made an assumption that makes you look like an ass.

    I have worked everyday since I was 14 and have never rec'd gov't assistance.

    Healthcare is not free in Canada. We pay for it via higher taxes on everyday purchases and personal income tax.

    Damn! You are such a disappointment. I was waiting for your grand explanation and all I got was your usual right wing talking points. Are there ANY original thoughts in your head at all? Or, more likely, you simply repeat everything you are told to.

    Namely. the super rich and corporations that are "tax dodgers" plus an increase in the corporate tax rate from a historically, super low 21% to a 25-28% rate.

    These proposals are extremely popular amongst middle class voters.

    The average family earning under $400k per year will see no increase in Federal income taxes.
    Then why call it "free"? Call it "tax payer funded" or something like that - but I guess that doesn't sell like "free" does? Usually when something is "free", you either get what you pay for or there are strings attached.

    Exactly how is it obvious he has lived off the "government dime"?
    We do not have access directly to to SSG's business records but I have a feeling that large portion of his income comes from Canadian government contracts without which he would be out on the streets as a beggar. Is the same true for you?

    Maybe SSG is part of the "rich people".

    It is only people who are uninformed who call it free. Nobody with any intelligence would say that.
    It is well documented that a single payer healthcare system costs the individual less than an insurance based healthcare system.

    Allow me to explain to youu how your healthcare system works. It is free for many. I'm talking about those that don't work or don't make enough money. It's all free to them. The reason it's free for them is because those who actually work are paying for it. And the more you earn, the more free-loaders that you're paying for.

    Are you really that big of an idiot to not understand this? Nevermind....

    Nope. He's not motivated enough to earn a lot of money. He'll talk it to death but would never actually put in the hard work.
