Flaherty: “I’m a liar”

Well, he might as well have just come out and said it after announcing that the early new year’s budget would be a deficit.

From CBC: Speaking to reporters after addressing the Saint John Board of Trade in New Brunswick, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said it is “likely” that the government “will now be obliged to present a budget with a deficit.”

“The key here is that the deficit be temporary and not structural, which means permanent and long term,” Flaherty said.

Amazing. He’s finally ready to admit something that almost every Canadian knew was coming. Do you know what else Canadians are figuring out? That this government compulsively lies.
