Clement calls out federal government for ‘out-of-control spending’
Tony Clement believes the Liberal spending is getting out of control.
The Parry Sound Muskoka MP is responding to the recent economic update from feds. The government is projecting a $19 billion dollar budget deficit for the end of this fiscal year, which is down from its $25 billion prediction from the spring.
But, Clement says this falls short of the original promise from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to bring the deficit down to $10 billion. He says Trudeau is putting too much money into government programs and taking more money from the middle-class to pay for them.
The feds announced on Tuesday they would be putting $9 billion into programs focused on the legalization of marijuana, drug-impaired driving and coast guard services.
