Pelosi and her zombie squad loves the grossly inaccurate CBO’s latest ObamaCare cost scoring!
No one but the gullible… believes the CBO score of $940 billion for ObamaCare. The bill is crafted in a way to force the CBO to conclude an enormously incorrect scoring calculation.
Obama, Pelosi, Read, and the rest of the Socialist Congressional hacks know it too but they pretend the $940 billion score is real and that the American Voters will buy it.
from The Weekly Standard:
Even the Democrats are granting that the latest version of their proposed health care overhaul would cost $69 billion more than the previous version. According to the CBO, this version would siphon even more money out of Medicare, make even further cuts to Medicare Advantage, and levy even higher taxes and fines on the American people. President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and their allies, are cheerfully citing “ten year” costs of $940,000,000,000.00 — apparently believing this to be a far more palatable figure than $1 trillion.
For a variety of reasons, this tally doesn’t remotely reflect the bill’s real ten-year costs. First, it includes 2010 as the initial year. As most people are well aware, 2010 has now been underway for some time. Therefore, the CBO would normally count 2011 as the first year of its analysis, just as it counted 2010 as the first year when analyzing the initial House health bill in the middle of 2009. But under strict instructions from Democratic leaders, and over strong objections from Republicans, the CBO dutifully scored 2010 as the first year of the latest version of Obamacare. If the clock were started in 2011, the first full year that the bill could possibly be in effect, the CBO says that the bill’s ten-year costs would be $1.2 trillion.
