Scheer Wants Lower Taxes on Beer. Canadians Say They’d Rather Have Free Health Care.
Canadians took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with Andrew Scheer’s latest anti-tax crusade.
Scheer claimed that the price of beer includes $20 worth of taxes, compared to $4 for beer in the US.
Social media users were quick to point out that while beer may be more expensive, those taxes pay for important services that our American neighbours do not have.
Social media users were also quick to explain how Scheer’s tweet was incredibly misleading. Federal taxes only account for a fraction of taxes leveled on beer.
If social media is any indication, Canadians have no problem paying a little more in taxes for health care, education and social services.
