Have You Ever Seen A CBO Score? – Here it is

As we mentioned in a prior post we actually like to look at source materials to get at facts and I had wondered what a CBO report looks like.

Well here it is!

Senate Bill

Reconciliation Bill

A bit confusing but the numbers on the spreadsheet match those in the act so you can see by section what cost/benefit a particular provision is scored.

We discovered this while tracking down the source of the “16,000 new IRS agents” urban legend that has become fact by repetition from the right wing blogosphere and leaders on the talk shows.

It is interesting to see how the CBO scores work and each section ties back to a part of the reform bill.
