"The NDP wants an expansion to the Canada Pension Plan and a $700-million annual increase in the Guaranteed Income Supplement."

Those bastards!

Gotta love Liberal bloggers who attack Layton for trying to get a deal from the Tories.

How many budgets have the Liberals voted for? What did they get in return?

Jack caving?
More like Jack asking for something he knows he will not get.

Flaherty got approval from the Provinces in December to go ahead with the framework for 'a new private-sector pension plan for workers and self-employed' INSTEAD of the expanded CPP the provinces were requesting.

Do Liberals expect NDP voters to shift back to the Liberals because Ignatieff has stolen a few ideas lately?

It worked in the 70's with PET. Stanfield never got the job and the NDP got smacked down for making parliament work.

Is it possible Layton will not repeat the same mistake. Eliminate the Liberals first and become official opposition is more realistic than running for PM.

CS - is it true that back in the day, Iggy stood you up at the high-school dance?

It would help to explain a lot.

TofKW,

I am always impressed with your need for personal attacks an obsession to engage me in conversation.

Did Halo crash? (Never mind)

Tof KW said...

Halo, cute. Never played it, or any other computer game.

I have a life CS, as evidenced by the fact that I only post on a half-dozen blogs here and there. Unlike you who troll on every friggin' blog & media site on top of maintaining you're own crappy blog.

BTW - I'm impressed with your ability to never answer a simple question posed to you. Further, it was not an attack, I would like to know if the rumour is true.

Heh. The person who, when yet again faced with an argument from me he cannot address, decides to retort with the suggestion I am performing oral sex on Ignatieff is complaining about personal attacks.

You are just sad.

"How many budgets have the Liberals voted for? What did they get in return?"

Ummm, an economic stimulus package?

And they did that even though, unlike Layton, they are not actually working with Harper.

You don't believe the testimony of Bill Clinton?

Next thing you will suggest in many Liberals don't skip votes on a regular basis.

or MI missed the most in 2010.

Tof KW said...

Yes again, not answering the question.
