Budget Time

Budget speech is here.

I'm not terribly impressed, but there are some good things in it. Time will tell whether they do any good. Still waiting for CBC to be privatized. I guess another letter to the relevant politicos is in order.

Smoke and mirrors. The budget is to keep the well-off rich happy. Doubling the TFSA is a mistake. The TFSA is already sucking significant money from tax revenues. I say that even though I take advantage of it and can also take advantage of the doubling of contributions but seriously, where will it all end? At least put a cap on the total lifetime contributions, say $50,000. Otherwise the more time goes on, the more the rich benefit and the more money bled from the tax revenues. I am also no fan of income splitting, again, another treat for the upper tax brackets. Disclosure: I make good use of 'pension splitting'. I am disappointed in Harper but I rather cut my throat than vote for Trudeau or the NDP.

Ditto on your last sentence. However, there is still time left for goodies to be tossed about, which usually happens in the lead up to an election. If the dippers and the Libs form a coalition that may be all that is needed to put the Cons over the top again.
