Concern over the deficit used as the rationale for large spending cuts. Claims that these cuts will somehow increase private sector employment. Exhortations that we need to do more for “job creators.” Ontario Progressive Conservatives or U.S. Republicans? It is hard to tell the difference.
Indeed, one could be forgiven for thinking that the Tim Hudak PCs are almost completely bereft of osriginal thinking, and so have been taking ideas and rhetoric straight from the Republican Party. So it was with the plan to introduce so-called “right-to-work” legislation. And so it is now with Hudak’s pledge to cut 100,000 public sector jobs if elected.
