These are comments from over 600 comments at MarshallPlan.ca from 5 medical doctors who spent their entire professional careers helping others and are not members of the elite 25% of Canadians with pensions and therefore wisely invested in income trusts as a means to provide monthly income, were kicked in the groin by the NDP and the NDP's utter incompetence and willingness to accept 18 pages of blacked out documents as the basis to destroy $35 billion of Canadians' life savings

Comments **: This action, this PROMISE, and this FLIP-FLOP of the Income trust decision has been probably the worst case of political dishonesty and foolish political knee-jerk reaction that I have witnessed in my political memory. As we all know, there have been numerous political "scandals" before, but this one is the top "dog". Not only was it dishonesty plus, but it continues to be so harmful to so many loyal and hard working Canadians who aren't blessed with the "Golden Retirement Packages" provided to you politicians by we taxpayers. This is SHAMEFUL, the way it presently stands.
Mr. Harper, Mr. Flaherty I beg you and your assistants to seriously examine this brilliant "Marshall Plan" and take the respectable and necessary action of implementing it in the upcoming March budget. We voters all have excellent memories, particularly with regards to blatent dishonesty. With it, you have made a huge black mark on the minds of many Canadians- but it's still not too late for a revival. We can forgive, but we can't forget!!

Comments **: As a Canadian senior who has paid income tax for more than 50 years, I urge the government to rethink its stand on income trusts, and to implement the so-called 'Marshall Savings Plan' in the upcoming 2010 budget. The income trust turn-around was the worst decision ever made by a Canadian government in my lifetime, and that's saying a lot. The stated reason, the tax slippage, was simply not true. I think the decision was made because the government was lobbied by the heads of large corporations, who saw their fiefdoms threatened by the popularity of income trusts. Whatever the reason, it was a bad decision, and something should be done to ameliorate its effects on those Canadians who acted responsibly and saved for their old age.

These MDs would be sued for medical malpractice if they misdiagnosed tax leakage the way the NDP did
