Calgary Liberal MP and Veterans Affairs Minister, Kent Hehr, wants you to feel ashamed for not enjoying having to give the government more of your hard earned money.
He tweeted a picture of himself filling up his van and said:
“Actually, I’m very proud to be paying for this tank of gas. It’s my first fill-up since January 1”
Ya, you unemployed Albertans, try to be more cheerful while the government takes more cash out of your family’s pockets.
Kent Hehr makes $251,900 per year. In March, as the unemployment rate was skyrocketing in Alberta, Kent Hehr gave himself a raise of $4,400 per year.
Alberta has 200,000 people unemployed. Calgary has a 10.3% unemployment rate, the highest in the country for five months in a row.
But Kent Hehr is boasting about how good it feels to spend more on gas.
Can he be anymore out of touch?
