    Let’s suppose we are a family that is in somewhat of a financial pinch. Our patriarch presents us with a plan, let’s say it is that we cannot buy a new TV until we have 50% down. Note

    that there is no time limit on this but rather it is an ultimate goal. Then the patriarch continues to buy a case of beer every week while telling the kids no more ordering in pizza.
    Horvath’s idea of no tax on electrical bills is particularly disturbing. Who is that going to help the most, people with high electrical bills! I have a friend who lives in a house with six rental

    units. Each of those units pay a base amount even if they use no electricity. My friend pays $40 per month and tells me that for $80 per month he would get to use 10 times as much

    electricity. In reality it is the base rate for using no electricity that should be reduced.
    Hudak’s idea is that we have to cut back so the rich will have more money to spend and this will somehow create a million jobs.
    Wynne has a plan to invest money in infrastructure which will, in itself, create jobs besides creating a platform for producing more jobs. This may take time to come to fruition but it does

    make a little bit of sense.
    Regarding the debt, who do we owe the money to? Is it to ourselves, to China, the ECU? Yes, we do have to turn things around a bit, but when times become good again rather than

    Hudak’s “cut taxes”, we must pay down some of the debt. This continual tax cutting is kind of a “keep them barefoot and pregnant tactic”.
