Mostly when we listen to a provincial government report of not quite managing the deficit of finances we are told it was due to one of the following. Either the fault of the Federal government transfer payments, health cost, snow removal, rising gas prices, road repairs, harsh winter or just not enough tax revenue. This was the case tonight on CBC Compass, our intrepid finance minister Allan (funny man)Roach explained the island deficit would be double what he had predicted. In other words he was 100% wrong in his prediction. However, this was the fault of the Federal government clawing back over payments of HST revenues. Of course it was Allan, how could anyone blame you, our ever so smart finance genius!!!. He then went on to say, and this is really the funny part, his department is moving forward and predicts that they will have a balanced budget in 2018!!!LOL. ThIs has to be a standing or maybe a running joke within the Liberal party. Isn’t this what was said by the Liberals last year, the year before and the year before that and the year before that, and the,,, well you get the message. What is so amazing his how this guy can say this on television and not even show a tiny hint of a grin. I’m sure if they asked me to make this statement I’d be laughing and rolling on the studio floor. I’m beginning to wonder if they are starting to believe themselves. If they do, they are the only ones that do, the rest of us just shake our heads, saying this is just more of the same old same old. Remember this other Liberal financial genius???. Please be careful don’t hurt yourself laughing too much. If it wasn’t so serious it really would be a court of jesters preforming for us instead of a government!!!
