Alberta fiscal update brings more bad news: 7 ways NDP could balance budget

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The second quarter fiscal update is more bad news for Albertans. Revenue is up $1.3 billion but expenses are up to $1.7 billion. The debt increased to $10.8 billion which is up over $700 million since the last budget was passed.

Why? Because the Alberta government simply can’t stop spending taxpayer money recklessly.

They’re pumping more money into the healthcare system, they’re paying millions into $25 per day daycare when we already have a subsidy program, more millions on a lunch program and half a million in ‘equality for women’ grants - all at a time when the province is paying $1 billion for debt servicing.

Corporate tax revenues continue to decrease along with drops in business investment. Ceci assures us that Alberta is middle of the road for taxes, while denying that business has been moving to different jurisdictions after the NDP raised taxes by 2% at the worst possible time.

I’ve already reported that Saskatchewan will out drill Alberta next year which suggests that Ceci’s claim is a lie.

Throwing more money at the public sector and a looming carbon tax that Albertans can’t afford just doesn’t make sense. I’m no accountant or economist, but I can think of several ways to have balanced out the $449 million in added spending from this update.

Watch as I offer seven ways off the top of my head, and this is just a start.

Albertans have reined in their spending significantly in these hard times.

If only the Alberta NDP used the lessons of everyday Albertans and implemented those same strategies into the budget.

These scum make me sick. They destroy the province while thinking they are doing a good job.

Take it easy Keith… I’m sure Alberta will pull together during the next provincial election and unanimously and with the majority vote in Brian Jean and the Wild Rose..
The Muslims here are almost as complacent and lazy as the liberals and will probably stay home because they don’t care who is in power they think they’re free shit will last forever..!!
However that being said the onus is on each and every Albertan to get out and cast a vote for the Wild Rose… Solicit your family solicit your friends and have your friends solicit their friends. Brian Jean will correct the horrors of the NDP government with Rachel Notley .

In addition to my last comment. If Alberta is full of Muslims, Notley is a pushover to be elected for a second term.

When I served in the Armed Forces, there used to be a popular saying among the Technicians, attached to Fighting Regiments. It went as follows, " If you can’t fix it F**k it so no one else can fix it. This is exactly what Notley is doing, except that she never intended to fix it.Her agenda is to destroy Alberta. She wants Albertans to leave and make room for Her and Flakey Jaytee’s Muslim friends.

The Saudi’s will buy up all the Oil Sands and have lots of cheap labor to extract the oil, they will then sell it back to Canada at inflated prices.

2.5 more years of these big spenders. Alberta will be decimated by the time they are done. It will take Alberta at least a couple of decades to get back to where Alberta was before these destroyers took office, assuming it can at all.
