All cuts, no trees

So, who didn't see this coming?

With only days to go before Harper incredibly votes non-confidence in himself and his government, Liberals are still kvetching about Dion's carbon tax.

Imagine: Liberals are finding that they can't sell a $15 billion tax increase that even Dion has admitted might not work to clean the environment.

The most amazing part: Liberal MPs like Wayne Easter aren't saying "make the carbon tax stronger by plowing its revenues back into sollutions like Finland and Sweden does" or even "scrap the tax and focus on a polluter-pays approach like Jack Layton and the premiers".

No, no. Easter is saying he wants more and bigger tax cuts!

One sign of a bad environmental program is when your own MPs are fixated more on what the carbon tax will do to hurt people, than what it won't do to help the environment.
