Enfants, Impôt sur le revenu, Troisième lecture et adoption

Mr. Speaker, the wonderful thing about tax credits is that we only get them if we pay taxes, so they do not necessarily benefit people who need them most. I did not see a huge benefit to that. We could put those investments elsewhere in the budget and the economy. That is what the government has done and will continue to do.

Monsieur le Président, ce qu'il y a de merveilleux avec les crédits d'impôt, c'est qu'on les obtient seulement si on paye de l'impôt; c'est donc dire que les personnes qui en auraient le plus besoin n'en profitent pas nécessairement. Il n'y a pas de quoi se réjouir, selon moi. Nous pourrions investir cet argent ailleurs dans le budget et dans l'économie. C'est exactement ce que le gouvernement fait et c'est ce qu'il va continuer de faire.
