OLE BILL WONDERS 

So in Ralph’s World the latest increase in taxes is a charge on Alberta Blue Cross. That’s because it’s an outfit that puts service to citizens people ahead of making themselves rich.

Why tax a non-profit organization? Well, Ralph says its’ so insurance companies who exist to make money for people as far away as New York and Chicago can make more money for people who already have lots. Doesn't seem to matter that they exploit peoples’ misfortunes and illnesses.

Doesn’t it seem kinda funny that Ralph sells himself to the public as a man of the people and then goes and handicaps organizations that put service to the people ahead of making massive profits?

If being non-profit makes an outfit a target for higher taxes who could be next? “Meals-on-Wheels”? Or, come to think of it, maybe that’s why Ralph makes us older people pay health care premiums. After all we’re non-profit people.

Just wonderin’ - Bill Barley, Abnormal Albertan
