Harper Gives $14 Billion Surplus To Bankers
During the years that Roy Romanow was Premier of Saskatchewan, he operated with a very popular model for utilizing surplus budget dollars. With a policy called ‘1/3 - 1/3 -1/3', all surplus dollars went one third to debt reduction, one third to tax cuts, and one third to program creation or enhancement. The model worked well and is one of the reasons that Saskatchewan New Democrats have been able to remain in power for 16 years.
Harper proved again yesterday how limited Conservative vision is. With the luxury of a surplus that could have been used for infrastructure spending, student loan relief or tax cuts, Harper knee jerked towards typical right wing ideology and handed the entire $14Billion to banks. No vision. No creativity. No concern for the citizens of the nation.
How are you liking ‘government by right wing ideology?’
