Spin, spin, spin, Stephen.

Between June 2 and September 6, Stephen Harper's Conservative government spent or promised to spend $19,233,543,503.00, according to a 19-page, detailed report produced by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.
Now try to reconcile (that's an accounting term, I believe) the amount above with a statement from Stephen Harper, in response to dire forecasts regarding the US economy.
"Obviously this is a time that requires prudence...this is not
the time for wild experiments in new taxes or grand spending schemes," he said.
This is not the time for .... grand spending schemes.
If Harper keeps spinning at that rate, by October 14th he should have spun a hole for himself all the way to China.
