M.P. David Anderson Comments on Federal Budget

Following the release of the 2018 Federal Budget, David Anderson, Member of Parliament for Cypress Hills-Grasslands, addressed the Liberals' budget.

This budget provides virtually nothing for the people of southwest Saskatchewan. As our leader Andrew Scheer said, Never has a politician boasted so much, spent so much and achieved so little.

While a quarter of last years initiatives remain to be implemented, this budget again spends record amounts of taxpayers money. The deficit is 3 times what the Liberals promised and young Canadians will pay for these irresponsible commitments for decades. Canada is adding $110 billion dollars to the national debt by 2022, bringing it to a total of $730 billion. This reckless spending needs to be reined in or our young people will be buried in debt, Anderson commented.

Anderson reacted to the Trudeau government's increased spending, The way to create a successful economy is to level the taxation playing field for everyone. Taxes have been raised for more than 90% of middle class families by this government. This budget fails to deliver the necessary tax relief that Canadians need. We don't grow the economy by putting big government ahead of people- there needs to be broad based tax relief for Canadians.

Anderson concluded, The lack of energy and enthusiasm in the Finance Minister's presentation is indicative of the Liberals inability to provide a vision for Canada. Unfortunately, never has there been so much money spent with so little value for the people of Cypress Hills-Grasslands.
