    Read the report. Show us where it is in error. Here's the link: https://www.cbo.gov/publication/52486
    The numbers they worked on Obamacare enrollment turns out to be 120% off.

    Awesome!

    Well the worst Terrorist Attack on US soil did happen under Bush. Then he sent our soldiers off to die in a senseless war. That's a pretty good start.

    That's because of the states that declined Medicaid Expansion. You see, Republicans do want us to Fuck Off and Die.

    Link?

    Awesome!
    So...to what do you attribute this? You think that the CBO specifically is incompetent or that accountants in general are incompetent? Do you think anyone could get this right, or is the number just unknowable? If someone COULD get the number right, what would they need to get that accuracy? Why can't we give it to them?

    The GOP can't complain about the CBO's partisanship, because it's run by a Republican, for an institution dominated by Republicans. If the CBO isn't as accurate as it could be, why not create a CBO that would be accurate? It's all up to the GOP, since they control everything about the CBO.

    for such an 'entitlement', I bet you're expecting a small increase...two or three percent...in your payroll taxes.

    But we know the reason for the discrepancy. Doesn't seem so unreasonable after all.

    In the meantime, how about looking at the CBO document and justifying your opening post? It's 28 pages plus appendices.

    Wrong. CBO upped their estimate from 20M to 22M after the court ruled that states could opt out.

    Oops!
