Good for Goodale...

As an avid advocate for tax cuts of all kinds, I agree with Ralph Goodale on taking the Conservatives to task for hinting at repealing the lower-middle class 1% tax cut from 16% to 15%, which is already in affect, along with the 1% GST cut.

But I'm thinking that Harper and Co. will want to examine the actual books and see if there is wiggle room in the budget. Well, there certainly is, but Goodale may have actually left a deficit after all the pre-election spending announcements made in November.

But really Ralph, you couldn't estimate a budget if it was $100 bucks. If the gov't can afford to overspend above inflation, like you did in November, it can afford even more than a measly 1% tax cut.
