The chaos in the Opposition continues today openly as Opposition Senator Dr. Andre Haughton Slams Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips calls for the Government of Jamaica to cut the General Consumption Tax (GCT) by 2%.
Haughton who was speaking today in the Senate is questioning whether that would benefit the country. He said it would cost the country 26 Billion per year. He says the savings from the two Percent reduction isn’t worth the amount the country will be giving up.
The Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips had made the call for a reduction in the rate of GCT by 2%. The current rate is 16.5%.
It once again showcase the fly by the wall policy position taken by the Opposition Leader. He didn’t seem to have thrashed it out with his members and Senators.
