Mr. Speaker, the prime minister has done it to health care. He has cut the transfer from $19 billion to $12 billion. That is a fact.
There are young families out there in which both parents are working and they cannot make ends meet because of high tax levels. There are businesses out there that would hire these younger workers we are all concerned about except that the government is charging excessive payroll taxes, and the throne speech did not promise a cent of tax relief to those families or those businesses. What it promised are 29 new spending proposals from the government.
My question to the prime minister is who does he think would spend any surplus more wisely, Liberal politicians and bureaucrats or those families and businesses?
