Harper's Cuts Total 7 Billion !

Posted on Friday, June 18 at 14:01 by Jim Callaghan
For Harper, his claim that he can balance the books with tax cuts and selective spending increases is one of the most controversial issues in the election. Liberal leader Paul Martin talks of a "$50 billion black hole" over the coming years between what Harper claims he can generate in income versus expenses. And many top economists, some with deep Conservative ties, are dismissing Harper's platform as financially unworkable.

What's critical in this debate is that Harper fails to mention that for his fiscal plan to work, it would require deep cuts in everything from food inspections to federal prisons and Canada's space program.
