Watch: In Under Three Minutes, Labour Party Shows How Benefits for Working Families Help the Economy

Julia Conley, staff writer

With a humorous video, the British Labour Party delivered a succinct message to voters on Monday: offering tax cuts to the rich while cutting social programs hurts communities and does nothing to promote economic growth.

Labour released its latest video on social media three days ahead of the country's local elections to urge voters to reject the Conservative Party's familiar claims that cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy will encourage companies to hire more workers and hand out raises.

Is it a “free,be” or an investment?

" About 84 percent of the income tax cuts introduced last year benefited the top half of British earners"

Sounds pretty extreme until you dig bit deeper and find out that the top 50% actually pay about 85% of taxes in the UK.

It’s bit more extreme in the US where the top 50% pay 97% of Federal Taxes.

It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.

And it may as well be the filthy rich who can more than afford to pay even more.
