The lefties are up in arms because the Conservatives want to wait for the budget to be balanced before they suggest any new programs, or any new spending.
I really like the income splitting option offered by the Conservatives, my kids will be too old by then to give us any tax break, but other families will benefit from this promise. Too bad the lefties need instant gratification. This is how I picture them...
The lefties want their goodies right now, they can't wait for a balanced budget. They slam PM Harper for not giving them their goodies sooner. They are not concerned about our deficit, or our debt, they don't even understand the difference between the two. All they know is that their socialist programs can not gain ground with the Conservatives standing solidly in their way. They need to destroy the whole idea of smaller government and lower taxes. That would give too much power to the people that they are scared of, because people who are allowed freedom will reject socialism every time they can.
I sense a ground swell of support for the Conservatives is happening, but the media is intent on "Iggy Madness". It is not going to work, Canadians are too smart, despite what the lefties think!
