Another delightful blast from the past…
“The problem is, once you cross that line… nothing stops deficits from getting larger and larger and spiraling out of control and we want to avoid the kind of government, household and trade deficit we’ve seen in the United States.” — Stephen Harper
Hmmm. Where to start? Those ever pesky facts indicate that government spending has spiraled out of control (even before introduction of the “Action Plan”) to the point where we now have an astounding $50 billion or more in deficit (nobody seems to know the actual figure with any precision), more households are going into bankruptcy than ever before, and that Canada ran a record trade deficit of $2 billion in August.
Mission not accomplished!
