Told Ya

So...

Allow me to refer you to the wayback machine with special emphasis on the comments on this particular post. Then we zoom forward a mere nine months to discover that failure is predictable.

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says the federal deficit will balloon to $50 billion this fiscal year, an increase of more than $16 billion from a January forecast.

It's believed to be the highest federal deficit ever.


Someone once said, "as it stands now, there is no deficit, and there won't be". That someone was, of course, an idiot.

Oh sure, that someone doesn't know shit from shineola on fiscal policy. But he really kills on science, as demonstrated in how he explained evolution theory to the Pharyngula crowd.

What really chaps my hide is the fact that the EI surplus was quietly raided specifically to present a deficit-free budget-that-wasn't last time around and now they're going on and on about how this financial crisis is costing so much because of unforseen stress on EI.

These guys spent all the money and then spent some more and they're still cutting services and presenting massively ridiculous deficits. And this happens EVERY GODDAMNED TIME a Conservative government gets into power and what is fucking WRONG with people that they don't see this?

Argh.
