    CBO: Health law repeal adds $230 billion to deficit - Sarah Kliff - POLITICO.com

    I guess the CBO is only relevant when it is agreeing with you. Like when Michael Steele said earlier last year that the CBO lied when it comes to the healthcare bill after citing it favorably eight times previously.

    Erci Cantor says the CBO is wrong, so it MUST be so, right?

    So, why would the nonpartisan CBO lie?

    Let us not forget a crucial factor: the Obamacare legislation kicks the taxes in EARLY. If the shit gets repealed, that new taxes get tossed out, too. Less so-called "revenue" for the government is likely to cause some increase in the deficit since the fuckers are counting on the receipt of those additional tax dollars.

    As for how much, that's a murky figure. The idiots, led by former Speaker Pelousy, didn't quite know what was IN the legislation before they passed it. Maybe they've had a chance to -- you know -- actually READ it since it got passed, though.

    The CBO reports any numbers Congress, in this case, the last Congress, cooks up.

    If Congress told the CBO to score the revenue from the sale of 2 arce parcels on the dark side of the moon, it would do that.

    Evidence? Is this going to be on par with your Brand X case showing that the FCC has no jurisdiction over the internet? :rofl:
