In Harper World - a Big Surplus means Cut, Cut, Cut!

The CPC have found themselves with a $13.2 billion surplus. So what do they do?

Why, cut programs of course.

Some of the programs may be good cuts, but how do you justify cutting the following:

- $78.8 million: Elimination of program that gave GST rebates to tourists

Isn't that a tax hike? The CPC is once again raising taxes.

- $13.9 million: Cancellation of National Defence High-Frequency Surface Wave Radar Project

I thought the CPC was all about military spending?

- $4.6 million: Cuts to museum assistance

Shame on you. Philistines.

- $4.6 million: Elimination of the RCMP drug-impaired-driving program's training budget

Tough on Law-and-Order my ass.
