Harper on Fox News today: “As a Conservative, I oppose raising taxes at the best of times, but we have not got the structural budgetary deficit that exists in the United States, that obviously limits the [Obama] administration’s options."
This is in obvious reference to Obama’s roll back of Bush’s tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000.
Evidently Harper has forgotten that he rolled backed Paul Martin’s tax cuts immediately upon taking office…..for the lowest wage earners in Canada.
What a hypocrite, this Harper is. Complete revisionist historian and deceitful to his very shallow core.
Meanwhile Harper's claim that he hasn't created a structural deficit is bit hard to reconcile with the fact that our $85 billion of budgetary deficit will only buy us $40 billion of stimulus. What is the other $45 billion shortfall, if not structural deficit?
