Shaken to the core by scandal after scandal after outrage after scandal,
the Liberals have decided to try outright bribery.

As transparent a scam as I've ever seen. We will get small checks from
Paulie Martin right before he calls the election. We will never again
see refund checks because there will never again be a "surplus". There
will be "new spending" instead.
I'm being bribed with my own money to vote for scam artists who use
taxes as their re-election fund.
In other news the evil and frightening Conservative Party suggests tax
cuts. Woooo, scary!
