    And the results in themselves disproves the accuracy of its prognostications.

    Naw, we have bad results because we want government to do all these things and we don't want to pay for them.

    For instance, when Ronnie Ray-gun said he wanted to cut taxes on the rich and spend a shitload of money on the military, the CBO told him it would run up the debt. They did it anyway.

    This is what happens when you put dogma over math and science.
