Only 7 Liberal MP's Turned Up To Vote On Their Own Budget Amendment!
"The House of Commons voted 202-7 against a Liberal amendment to the budget which would have brought down the government if it passed. The Grits intentionally crafted the amendment to fail to avoid an election which insiders say the party is ill-prepared to fight. They laced the wording with criticism of the NDP as big spenders. As a result, the NDP -- which wants to defeat the government -- did not support the amendment. And to be sure their amendment failed, only a handful of Liberals showed up for the vote. "
