An unnamed "senior government official" says former tightwad Stephen Harper will be borrowing $64 billion over two years and going on a spending bender the likes of which we haven't seen. Just to be clear, and not to get the unnamed official into trouble, he/she said there will be a $64-billion deficit. The tightwad and bender stuff are just things that we know.
There's also rumors of a tax cut for you and me.
So, to sum up:
- The government is going to spend lots of money it doesn't have; and
- plans to pay it back with less of a tax base.
The voters got the government they deserve. If you vote for idiots, don't be surprised when that's who ends up running the country.
