Something for everyone in the budget? Not quite.

I saw this at The Next Agenda by Frank in the comments thread as to who didn’t get anything out of the Conservatives budget today:

– If you’re single – nothing
– If you’re childless – nothing
– If you’re poor – nothing
– If you’re a senior – nothing
– If you’re a native and ‘unassimilated’ – nothing
– If you do not own a vehicle and have no interest in doing so – nothing

And if you’re a single, childless, poor, unassimilated native, senior who relies on public transportation – die already, you’re a burden to our electoral base. Or get married and move to the suburbs ASAP.

    Ummm.. see post above, Adrian. I am not, repeat, I am not a Liberal.

    Which just goes to show that you can make erroneous assumptions with the best of them.

    By the way – I also understand that many Conservatives, Dippers and Greens are similarly unimpressed. By your definition I guess that must make them all ‘Liberals’, eh?

  • [quote comment=”2583″]Frank isnt a Liberal as far as I know.

    The oil sands kicking off of grants doesnt happen til 2015 doesnt it? THat gives them plenty more funding.. so its hardly a penalty.[/quote]

    Yes, that’s correct. I am not a Liberal.

    Great Post, Scott.

    I think the reality is the great strategizer really blew the delivery on this. They planted so much false hope in the past few weeks, some on things I don’t agree with but which I would admit they could at least be used as fodder to their base. But they delivered on so very little of what they had teased.

    And, what’s worse is that, if the economy slows at all, they will have blown the surplus. While that reflect badly on Harper, I wouldn’t wish a faltering economy on Canada just to win an election.

    I think Dion hit the nail on the head when he said he’d never seen a budget spend so much to deliver so little. We should watch that guy . . . he’s smarter than the cons realize . . .

    I was impressed with the budget, given they did not bow to corporate interests, and kicked the oil sands people off welfare.
