    They already gave more tax cut`s than they were planing on.Stephen Harper wanting to cause an election put in a whole bunch of tax cuts in the last budget.Theses tax cut`s were considered to be fiscally irresponsible and the opposition should have fell the government.They did not,because it would political suicide to over through the government over tax cut`s .Now they have to wait till next year and hope that we still have a surplus.Any surplus goes to pay off Canada`s debt,so as long as we continue having surpluses we will keep getting tax cut `s slowly.They are afraid of not having a surplus on there watch.
