Liberals trying to bribe us with our own money

It is infuriating that politicians of all stripes believe they can bribe us with our own money.

Liberals trying to bribe us with our own money

In the lead-up to the 2015 federal election, the Conservative Party was justifiably criticized by the opposition Liberals and NDP for a rash of pre-election spending announcements. It has been reported that those 2015 announcements totaled $1.4 billion.

Fast forward to today and the governing Liberals have announced a total of $7.75 billion in new spending goodies since Aug. 11 in advance of the October election. This is obviously a desperate attempt by Justin Trudeau and the Liberals to make us forget the broken election promises, ballooning deficits, scandals and his two proven violations of the Canadian conflict of interest and ethics laws.

It is infuriating that politicians of all stripes believe they can bribe us with our own money. More infuriating still is that they are probably correct.
