Being the finance minister isn’t easy. There are all those numbers and things and you have to know how to add and subtract but in the case of the Liberals, the most important skill you must possess is being a smooth talker.
The Liberals have been talking down the Canadian economy and the government’s fiscal situation for a long time because they need the public to think that the country is already in deficit and that it has been for a long time, that it was the Harper Conservatives that did that to Canada. Why?
So they can justify saying they’re going to “rescue” us with more spending.
I’ll show you the evidence to prove they aren’t being truthful and when I do, just think about how absurd Morneau sounds as he tells us how important it is to him and the government to be open and transparent about Canada’s fiscal situation.
Too bad he’s a liar.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are spending us into deficit. They will not admit they inherited a surplus because that destroys part of the underlying argument for their huge deficits down the road. They need you to believe the cupboards were bare.
Trudeau promised three small deficits of $10B, now he and Morneau are projecting deficits of $18.4B but that is before the Liberals add in new spending.
I’ve predicted the budget deficit will be between $25 and $30 billion, others estimate it could go as high as $35B.
The Liberals are going beyond just making sure they don’t let a crisis go to waste, they’re actually inventing a crisis so they can implement their solutions – spending they wanted to do but needed to find a justification for.
Trudeau’s plan all along was to spend like a Liberal, to create new social programs and to use deficits as a ruse to do that.
