Saskatchewan 2012 Budget

The Brad Wall SaskParty government introduced a so-called austerity budget. The problem is they missed the mark as total spending increased. They are not different from any other government. They just cannot stop spending and they rely on unreliable income forecasts. Total debt is increasing and the government is paying down less this year than last.

I would reduce the size of government, slow spending, introduce a plan to eliminate the total debt in someone's lifetime, and reduce the size of the legislature by at least ten MLA's. Do these things all incrementally and consistently in less than ten years and you have a plan I can support.
