And they inherited a $15 BILLION surplus!

The Harperites ran a freakin’ deficit for the first two months of the year!

I hope that this dispels the myth of the Conservative Reformers as being fiscally responsible!

It’s not like they have been spending like drunken sailors as much as they have been incompetent stewards of the country’s revenues sources. Ill-advised and regressive tax cuts, like the ones to the GST, are finally coming home to roost.

I hope that the nation pays attention to this and this blundering plays a role in their decisions at the ballot box next time around!

However, one can’t help but wonder if this is part of a larger plan. Remember that the NeoCons believe that less government is better government. Now they have a bona fide (albeit manufactured) excuse to start cutting programs.

Get ready Canada: you voted for this guy and now we’re all going to pay!

    The CBC link to the monitor appears to be broken, and I can’t seem to find just April & May. I found April to June, at least, so the numbers don’t match the article.

    Anyway…

    I notice that everywhere it says “budgetary deficit”. You’re smart guy, so you do realize that means they’ve simply taken in less money then they anticipated. I’d like to see the real numbers.

    Besides, this was expected. I’m not at all surprised, and the numbers wouldn’t have been any different if another party was in power. I fully expected them to run a deficit. What I want to know is, should we go into an election, what the various parties’ plans are to eliminate any debt that comes out of a deficit.
