Drummond sets record straight on Liberal spending

And the curmudgeons aren't gonna like it.


A few takeaways from the interview with this economist:

1. Contrary to the PC propaganda machine, the Liberals have already implemented 80% of his tough 2011 budget

2. The Ontario economy would need to receive a credit downgrade to BBB for markets to be affected

3. They are no where near that level and he doesn't foresee it ever happening

4. Hudak's plan officially a stupid one and he should have focused on efficiencies instead of hard cuts to the public sector


More curmudgeon crow here...

From the mouth of a party hack. Efficiencies are gained by cutting excess staff and making the rest actually work for their money, not increase government spending.

I guess I gave the population of Ontario more credit than they deserve. How anyone could vote for more taxes, wind turbines (which are totally unnecessary and which will increase power bills even more over the next 20 years), more cronyism, etc. is beyond me.


I'm shakin' my head!

How is Drummond a party hack? lol

He was the one the PCs idolized as a talking point just before the election.
