Did Harper break his promise not to cut the GST credit?

Is it just me, or has everyone's quarterly GST rebate cheques gone down a fair bit as a result of the cut in the federal excise tax from 7 to 6%? Some of my supervisors tell me they earned the same amount or slightly more last year, but just under the threshold before the rebate starts getting clawed back. But instead of the $200 or so they were expecting for their families, they got about $170. Singles who were expecting something in the range of $100 only got $88. Me included.

Have this happened to any of the rest of you? Please post.
