If anybody in the USA wants to experience "socialism" first hand all they have to do is move to Canada.
They can take the place of all the Canadians that are leaving the country.
Your tax rate will go up to 48 %
in the maximum tax bracket.....it starts at $58,760 by the way. The maximum tax rate in the USA is about 30% I believe and it starts at $250,000. Your mortgage interest IS NOT tax deductable here also.
You will also pay a 7% federal tax, plus a provincial sales tax of between 5-10% on top of that (except in Alberta) on all purchases.
We DO NOT have free healthcare here either.
That is a LIE perpetrated by Prime Minister Poutine....err I mean Chretien.....and the bastard Liberal governemnt we have had that has ruined this country.
You will pay about $150 per month for health insurance and your employer will also match that amount as well. Combined with our much higher taxes and the fees you pay....this country is in real big trouble.
Our dollar is worth about one Brasilian Real.....we are really a thrid world country dressed up like a first world country.
And before you flame me......I will be one of those leaving in the next 12-18 months.
