I am talking about the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.
In an excellent column in today's National Post, CTF spokesman Kevin Gaudet explains why racking up massive deficits is a bad, bad, idea.
As Gaudet writes:
While Mr. Harper and Mr. Flaherty prepare the budget, it is clear the voices of today are gaining their attention; many of whom want the government to continue its high-spending ways. However, the government would be wise to listen to the voices of the past and future. Those of the past know the harm caused by systemic government deficits. Those of the future surely don't want to pay for yesterday's and today's financial imprudence. The Harper government should proceed down its current path with extreme caution.
By the way, while the CTF is busy standing up for fiscal sanity, another conservative group, which shall go nameless, has yet to utter a single word protesting the impending government spending splurge.
I wonder why?
