PC vote was one for economic sanity

Re: “How your vote counted” – Letter: The Oshawa Express – June 27, 2018

Dear Editor,

Reading Gord Vickers letter “How your vote counted” reminded me of an old Maggie Thatcher saying that ” The only thing wrong with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money to spend.” The election of the PC government was a vote for fiscal and economic sanity against the promise of more nanny state programs from both Liberals and the NDP. Programs which will do nothing but drive business away, bankrupt this province and cost even more part-time workers their jobs, the vast majority of which are students. So yes, I’m one voter who will enjoy my buck a beer, more of my money in my pocket from tax cuts, the end of the useless carbon tax,  lower hydro costs and, hopefully, a balanced budget.
