Budget 2014-2015 – Budget Leitao: a passport to permanent austerity

QUEBEC CITY, June 4, 2014 / CNW Telbec / – Québec solidaire regrets that the first budget Couillard government puts Quebec in permanent austerity that showcases the ideas of the CAQ. Liberals show that real economic opposition is found in Québec solidaire.

“Recipe of the government to achieve a balanced budget is 90% cuts and 10% of new revenue measures shy! We spend energy to get peanuts in Quebecers are the most vulnerable on welfare who have made a simple error in their form, then you could get $ 800 million by taxing financial institutions! “Raises the MP and spokesman QS, Françoise David, indicating that permanent austerity it also means permanent and growing inequalities.

“This is science fiction to believe that this budget will not affect services to the population. Imagine a hiring freeze in the public and semi-public services until March 2016 and a ridiculous spending growth programs! To be clear, the people waiting for months to meet with a psychologist or a speech therapist in the public system will have to wait much longer! “Growls the member for Gouin.

For solidarity, dangle tax cuts after years of misery is a smokescreen. “What the majority of Quebecers wish-es are not tax cuts, but utilities up to what they pay!” She continues.

Recalling that Québec solidaire is the only party to defend an economic vision marked by respect for the environment, the member for Saint Mary – Saint-Jacques , Manon Massé, regrets all the attention given to private investment. “There has for traditional sectors, such as mining, energy and construction. It is to believe that the public and social economy is not part of the equation. It is therefore not a surprise to see that the funding requested by community groups has not been granted, it is simply distressing. “
