Are CEOs panicking over a new style of tax rage brewing? | rabble.ca.

For years now, all the oxygen in public commentary about taxes has been sucked up by a rabid anti-tax movement, funded by corporate and wealthy interests. Organizations like the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and the National Citizens Coalition have been allowed to hold court in the media as if they were simply disinterested outfits representing ordinary people. Their huge anti-tax bullhorn has been amplified by in-house commentators from the business press and then reiterated by Harper government spokespeople, all within the closed echo chamber known as “public debate.”

The general public and the average tax-payer doesn’t care. They think it’s just politicians making noise and they filter it out – exactly what the right-wing wants, a cynical, brain-washed electorate. -PG
