“What he gives with one hand, he takes more with the other,” says Scheer of Trudeau’s federal budget.
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer ripped into the Trudeau government’s 2018 budget, criticizing Trudeau for his massive budget deficits, breaking his promise to help the middle class, and failure to address Canada’s weakening competitive position.
Scheer pointed out that Trudeau promised three ‘small’ deficits of less than $10 billion per year, while the upcoming budget deficit is $18 billion.
Trudeau also launched a tax attack on small businesses in the budget, with Scheer saying “we know that Justin Trudeau is raising taxes on local businesses, that have been under constant attack by this Prime Minister since last summer.”
Watch Scheer’s remarks below:
Scheer also pointed out something very important, that the budget has no contingency for the end of NAFTA, and doesn’t respond to the massive tax cuts in the US.
As a result, Trudeau’s 2018 budget leaves Canada even more economically vulnerable and weak.
Trudeau will try to spin his budget in many different ways, but nothing can change the fact that his 2018 budget is once again full of deception and debt.
