PNP’s Dr. Peter Phillips Bad Mounts JLP Shaw’s Budget

Peter Phillips

Dr. Peter Phillips had harsh criticism for the J$580 Billion presented in Parliament recently and carried by Vision.

He labeled JLP/Shaw’s plan as a “Sham” budget.

The opposition Finance Spokesman was supportive of the JLP’s Income Tax Plan and new tax on cigarettes. He had no new proposal to offer in the debate.

By supporting Shaw’s tax plan he looks stupid … as during the election campaign he was bitterly opposed to the plan. Phillips is now jumping onto the wagon … we call them “wagonists” in Jamaica.

He (Phillips) felt that J$13 bil tax income projected is not collectable so there will be a shortfall to fund the budget.
