Canada's first NDP Budget

The Liberals have had to sell their soul to regain power... the NDP have gotten their wish to raise corporate taxes by $50 billion dollars.

Out of a job yet? Let the coup succeed.
Fife also reported that the coalition government would introduce a $30-billion economic stimulus package and roll back $50 billion in planned corporate tax cuts.

He said that an adviser to NDP Leader Jack Layton informed the party caucus of the plans on Sunday. The conversation was taped by Conservatives.

"The big deal is this new coalition would spend $30 billion in economic stimulus and to help pay for it they would roll back $50 billion of corporate income tax cuts," Fife told Canada AM.


UPDATE: Liberal MP Scott Brison says this is a rumour, and is false.

    Yikes...

    30 billion bail out only to take it back as taxes from all businesses...

    What the heck are they thinking? Who let the chimps out of the zoo and let them believe they were people?

    Watch the incredible shrinking economy when these guys steal power. At least with Flaherty, we had a chance for a free-market solution instead of wallowing in recession for 2+ years (like the Americans are doomed to).

    Whatev, at least I'll be employed.

    To quote The Princess Bride, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    My dictionary defines a coup as, "a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from government." I'm not sure the word actually fits the situation in this case.
