CBO: We don't new information- we have our last press relase to guide us



[W]e don’t think one can learn much from watching the evolution of particular components of GDP [gross domestic product] over the last few quarters about the effects of the stimulus … so we fall back on repeating the sort of analysis we did before. And we tried to be very explicit about it that it is essentially repeating the same exercise we did rather than an independent check on it.[1]
When asked if this means that any actual underperformance of the stimulus would fail to show up in the CBO’s stimulus jobs count, Elmendorf replied “That’s right.” This means the 1.5 million jobs saved estimate was pre-determined.
