Canada's Stephen Harper-Bush Clone With Regards to Economics
But with regards to economics, Harper seems eerily similar to Bush. I haven't followed canadian politics until the last week or so and when I first heard that Harper favored reducing the national sales tax, I thought "great", particularly after how conservative Angela Merkel in Germany will in 2007 implement a 3 %:points increase in the value added tax (allegedly to reduce the deficit, but as she at the same time wants increased government "investments", this argument is not convincing). But now I read that Harper also wants "increased funds for health care and child care". He also wants to increase military spending. Cut taxes and increase spending on health care and the military? Now, that is a Bush clone.
