Damn those partisans at the CBO! :icon_cool
Stimulus Jobs Count: CBO Admits It Ignored the Economy’s Actual Performance
They are doing the same thing here: assuming spending adjustments, new regulations and raising taxes on the rich will have no negative effect on the economy.
6 billion in 10 years.
Yup, that oughta solve the problem.
I 'm just assuming they mean trillion.
Hmmm. Heritage. Yep, definitely non-partisan over there. I'm sure you could find partisan economists on both sides that could make those cases for or against.
BTW, nice avatar. I see you found that hipster's photostream.
Yet when people bitch about the chump change we spend in foreign aid, it's always "EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!!!"
Nope, billion. It says it twice in the first two lines. So in the next ten years, assuming we don't acquire any new debt icon_lol::icon_lol::icon_lol, this will reduce our national debt by 0.04%.
That's 1/250% every year. Pass this son of a bitch today!
I think we all remember that the CBO can only score a bill as written. Remember all the double-counting in Obamacare? The CBO had to score the bill with the inclusion of double-counting, so it made it seem as though it was viable. Example: A new bill comes out saying that they are going to give everyone a free house and they are going to pay for it with the profits from the unicorn piss they are going to start selling for $10million a bottle. The CBO can't say "there's no such thing as unicorns, this bill is bullshit." The just have to run the math as it is written in the bill.
You know what else would decrease the deficits by $6 billion over 10 years? Spending $600 million less every year. That's only a little more than the loan that they gave to ONE green energy company icon_cool). Anyone who claims they couldn't cut $600 million a year out of the federal budget should be executed.
CBO: Make an estimate-miss it? "Things were worse than we initially predicted."
Always be right.
