Red Ali is treating us like idiots. Does she seriously think that we are going to be enchanted with her deficit budget? Alberta has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.
Here is a link to all the goodies.
We have goodies for the aboriginals, the sick, the disabled, the young, the old, the cities, transit, farmers, at risk children, homeless, the environment, and finally, the taxpayers:
Wow, I'm impressed, no new taxes.....that sounds familiar....like Daddy Dalton, who once elected, imposed new taxes! Then we are supposed to feel grateful that we don't pay as much as people in other provinces?
- No new taxes and no tax rate increases.
- Personal income tax credits increased to offset inflation.
- Albertans and Alberta businesses pay the least taxes in the country – with the lowest fuel tax among provinces, no payroll tax, no capital tax and no provincial sales tax.
- Albertans would pay almost $11 billion more in taxes each year with any other provincial tax system.
What they are actually telling us taxpayers, is we are lucky they didn't raise taxes. How about cutting some programs? Laying off all the deadwood in government?
They think we are sheep. We are not, and Red Ali has no clue how the average Albertan thinks because she is too busy hobnobbing with the "elites". Maybe she should get down to a working farm and muck out the stable, so she can get a real feel for Albertans. Vote Wildrose, boot these bums, 40 years is too long!
