What Mercer Said

The only thing I would add is I believe the deficit was completely necessary. The government should not be ashamed that it spent the money during a recession (how it was spent is a different story). However, that money is not found money. We are going to have to pay it back. No one in Ottawa seems to have the guts to admit that.
