Now we see that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is planning a slate of tax rate hikes on the upper class (defined to mean anyone making over $250k) — like a medical payroll tax on high-income earners (a $50 billion drag on purchasing power for this group) not to mention the $460 billion confiscation being planned as part of a new 5.4 percentage point surtax (high-income earners in Ontario will recall those from the early 1990s). No wonder immigration into Canada is running at a 4% annual rate and foreign applications at Canadian universities surging at a 7% annual rate at this time — the reverse brain-drain is in.
