Why would they want to?
How about expecting a level of fair taxation? Have the rich pay their fair share of taxes?
As a Canadian citizen, we're not facing a deficit problem. We're facing a revenue problem. We talk about cutting services, tightening the belt and making due on less. Everyone must bite it a little with this deficit. But it's not a deficit problem. The tax dollars of the rich are returned because governments state they don't need them. Then in turn are cutting the services that our system relies on, freezing wages on the middle class, targeting pensions and benefits of those that need them to provide for their families.
If everyone, rich and poor, small business and large corporations, all paid their fair share of taxes.. the western world would be in a much better situation.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but do you realize that if the entire country just went on strike, it would send us into an economic collapse so fast we wouldn't even have time to make the picket signs.
