Why is everyone in Canada so obsessed with balancing the budget?
I am probably naïve, but can't the government just make money to spend.
I really mean obsessed, because to a point I understand it, we don't want devaluation of the currency and hyper-inflation. But they always talk about it and they don't really explain why it's so important.
There are other important issues you know?
Besides, tax the shit out of the wealthy, balance the budget, problem solved.
