What do the Red Queen and the Congressional Budget Office have in common?

They can each believe six impossible things before breakfast. Well, in the case of the CBO it's five things, including the notion that Congress will slash Medicare payments by 30% by the end of 2011 and all the Bush tax cuts will be allowed to expire. But, like the Obamacare mess, that's the way they have to score because that's the current Washington policy...until it changes. Anyway, here's Hot Air with "CBO: Deficits will drop, thanks to measures that will never take effect."

Extra - Over at Hit & Run, Peter Suderman speculates that somewhere in the multiverse, there may be a parallel Earth where Washington gets its fiscal house in order. But it ain't here.
