"Well, yeah. That's kind of how socialism works…"

What to say when the Ontario government complains about fiscal imbalance:

So the provincial government is upset that the federal government is taking money from it to do things that it doesn't necessarily agree with … because it makes more than the other provinces? Does Ontario wish that it could benefit from its own prosperity rather than divvying up its earnings?

[…] I find it a little bit strange that they advocate doing the exact same thing they're complaining about to higher-income earners within the province when they obviously see the downside to such practises.
