Tax Break Insanity

Mr. Harper, you've already squandered the surplus. You squandered it so quickly that you couldn't even buy the icebreaker that was part of your vaunted "Arctic Sovereignty" plan nor your supply ships that were part of your central "revitalizing the military" concept.

And now you're going to offer $750 to everyone who buys a new home?

Besides being an obvious bribe for votes, what could this hope to accomplish? Should we lure more people in to debt that they can't afford? Is this really going to change the number of people buying new homes? How much will it cost and how are you going to pay for it? You've already run a deficit. Do you even know what you're doing?

Well, obviously I can now afford a house since it is $750 cheaper.
