  •  Citing the CBO (0+ / 0-)

    The only time we see politicians citing the CBO is when it makes them/their party look good....or vice versa, when it makes their opponents/party look bad.

    I agree...they're really pretty unreliable...but, to be fair, they only make "projections" based on the information given them by our politicians.

    Much of that is pretty slanted and, in itself, unreliable.
