The master of "bait & switch"

His "middle class tax cut" will cost Canada billions of dollars. He has pledged another three billion to "change the world's temperature."

He then pulled back sharply on the refugee throttle and climbed down from his promise to restore veterans offices. He also repudiated all of his "freedom of information" pledges and now there's this.

Let's face it, Canada... you've put P.T. Barnum in charge of the box office... and for the next four years those clumsy, garish clowns are gonna be continually tumbling out of the tiny red car.


UPDATE: About that $10,000,000,000 deficit...

...well, we sort of lied...

By targeting debt-to-GDP, the Liberals could instead be prepared to run annual deficits of up to $25 billion in the coming years.

LAST WORD: There's still legal dope, right?
"Beyond sunny ways, this is a government that looks to be light on core principles. It had best discover some, before it loses yet more credibility."

Actually, the "middle class tax cut" gives the most relief to those with taxable income of $90,000 - $200,000. That's because this group gets the full benefit of the lower rate but doesn't see the higher one kick in. Even above $200,000 taxable income, there is a benefit from this cut until about $218,000.

The real losers are the two-income families in the $45,000 - $90,000 range where each makes less than $45,000. Benefits such as GST and CCTB are clawed back based on family income, so they'll be starting to lose same. But taxation is based on individual income, so neither will qualify for the reduced rate.

well, we sure don't want to unfairly burden any of the honourable members of parliament, do we?
