Deficit is Liberals fault, taxpayers’ burden

What makes me upset is that the ones who will be scrapping the HST will get even bigger bonuses.

In the latest provincial budget reports, finance minister Kevin Falcon said that “the province ended the fiscal year with $1.84 billion deficit, almost double the budgeted amount, largely due to $1.6 billion in HST repayment to Ottawa.”

Well, who’s fault is this?

The ones at fault are those who came up with the whole HST idea. I’m sure they got big bonuses because of that.

What makes me upset is that the ones who will be scrapping the HST will get even bigger bonuses.

It would be a good idea for anyone that works for the taxpayers, to give us a report showing what they’ve done for us, on a monthly basis. Let them tell us why they think they deserve all the high wages, perks and bonuses.

If you ask the police, they will tell you exactly, minute by minute, what they did on their shift (and they’re not even being payed as much.)

So far, they’ve created a huge deficit in the budget due to wrong decisions. It sounds like very few of the chosen executives (by who?) are truly dedicated to their jobs, and the rest are just takers.
