Harperites now eligible for pensions!

Almost all the remaining MPs from the old Reform Party — including Stephen Harper — stand to collect over $100,000 a year in pension benefits once they retire.

Let’s see how committed they are to their own agenda. So, if the Harperites scale back PS pensions, will they refuse to accept their own benefits as they once promised? Ha!

Numbers crunched by the Taxpayers Federation lobby group show that Prime Minister Harper is in line to collect $150,244 a year if he were to retire at the end of this year, while Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl could collect more than $155,000.

In case you’re wondering, that’s a HELLUVA lot more than I will be entitled to when I retire around 2022.

I would love to be a fly on the wall at a ConCaucus meeting where they are discussing how to dance around this one!

Of course, expect the right-wing nutjobs to blame the whole thing on the liberal-controlled media.

Or aliens. They like to blame the aliens too.
