LETTER: Government borrows your credit card

From reader Rod Retzlaff

The Trudeau government is doing its best to keep people solvent in the current pandemic, but the opposition’s criticism is not very well thought out. According to Andrew Scheer, they are fumbling the ball by not helping out business enough and acting too slowly. It seems like breakneck speed to me, for government.

The NDP for their part have what they call a simple solution. Just give every adult in Canada $2,000 a month until the pandemic subsides, and then sort out who deserves it at tax time. Sounds like the idea of a 10 year old. I sure hope the NDP opts for an adult for leader soon, while they still have some small semblance of a political party.

I think the government should have been a little more careful not to make people better off not working than they were when they were working, but I guess if no one is willing to work after this is over, we can just bring in some more foreign workers. No problemo.

Make no mistake though, as a friend of mine recently pointed out, the government has just taken everyone’s credit card, and charged up $6,500 or so, and it is going to take a lot of paying back.
