Goodale to not only announce tax cuts, but bring forth a bill...

So, apparently (they were just discussing this on CTV Newsnet) Ralph Goodale will not just announce planned tax cuts today, but the government is going to bring forth an actual bill announcing some new tax cuts (retroactive to Jan. 2005 as well) that would apparently come up for a vote sometime BEFORE the next opposition days.

So I guess the opposition will have to vote against tax cuts for Canadians, or alternatively vote WITH the government on a confidence matter, immediately before voting AGAINST the government in a confidence matter.

This should be fun to watch.

More details to follow, no doubt...

Paul Martin and his extremist supporters are waaaaay too scary for Canadians, that's why he NEVER wins majorities.

Until you extremists stop being so extreme you will LOSE in BC again, LOSE in Alberta again, LOSE in Saskatchewan again, LOSE in Manitoba again, LOSE MANY seats in Ontario again, LOSE seats in Quebec again, and LOSE seats in Atlantic Canada too.

The Liberals aren't even a national party; they are only supported in the inner-city really, and barely exist west of Kenora.

Hi anonalogue,

I'm not sure what that comment had to do with the original post exactly but uhm, thanks for the input.

As it turns out, I was wrong. The opposition WON'T have to vote against tax cuts after all.

Why?

Well, it turns out that corrupt vote-buying scheme the Tories were denouncing yesterday isn't so bad after all. In fact, not only is it not so bad, but it turns out it's actually a sign that the Liberals have "adopted the Conservative agenda".

So, despite the fact that the Liberals have lost the moral authority to govern, and ignoring the fact that the Tories blasted the NDP for supporting the corrupt Liberals and their spending policies in the Spring, it turns out the Tories have decided to support the corrupt Liberals Winter plan, because they agree with the Liberals' spending priorities.

Did everyone follow that?

Yesterday's corrupt vote-buying scheme is today's stolen Tory policy.

Propping up the government because you agree with their plan in Spring is unfathomable... doing the exact same thing in Winter is principled and clever.

OK then!

I need an aspirin.
