Once a bad idea, always a bad idea

It's for the best that columnists are beginning to raise the demand that the Cons reverse their own ill-advised policy ideas past and present as their primary means of keeping the federal budget balanced. And that's doubly true compared to the Cons' own apparent plan to attack the public service or offload the burden onto the provinces.

But it strikes me as odd that the Cons' pointless giveaways are only now being highlighted. After all, is there any real difference in how much merit they hold based on whether or not the fiscal picture includes a potential deficit? And if not, shouldn't there have been a far more critical examination of what they would do when they were first introduced?
