    Default Trudeauís first budget

    Well that just sucked ass for me. Happy birthday Mike, we're cutting the universal child benefit, scrapping a couple other child related write offs all while running a 30 billion dollar deficit. Yuck.

    From what I've heard him say, I am not too surprised.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    The deficit not a surprise, actually better than many expected. Stripping benefits from any family making 180k was a surprise. "Rich" isn't what it use to be. During the election the bar was always 250k.

    So beyond that - I guess you don't feel that this is the real change he promised.

    Truth be told, I like a lot of it for the country as a whole. Although I'd like to see a faster path to balance. Personally it sucks ass. Basically makes us 3k poorer per year. We'll be fine but there's some major bait and switch here. Not the numbers he ran on. This is a political winner. It demolishes the NDP.

    Universal Child what? We do not know what you speak of, man from another planet. Here in the US, "Universal Child" would be the title of a Yanni record or something. Please explain.

    Prior government created a child benefit program. 60 bucks per month per kid 1-18. (160 if they were under 6 was a new change in 2015 - election move). It was a way to avoid getting into the daycare business that the left wanted.

    Liberal government promised to up the amounts but any person making over 250k wouldn't get it. It helped get them some of the upper middle class votes. 250k/person was the rich threshold. In the budget that was changed to 180/family.

    The difference between 250K per person versus 180K per family is HUGE.

    Depending upon where you live, 180K per household isn't that much.

    One thing I HATE about national tax law. It treats the guy living in New York City making 180K the same as the guy in Lincoln Nebraska making 180K, and they are WORLDS apart.

    Same here. Toronto / Vancouver more like NYC than they are the rest the country as far as cost of living is concerned.
