The CBO won't say 2+2=3 - Politico: "CBO deals new blow to health plan" The independent accountants say it will save NO money over 10 years. Keep in mind that the whole point of this reform is to somehow curtail the deficit spending that is already assumed as Medicare expenses grow.

Extra - Legal Insurrection: "What a pathetic joke the Democratic legislative effort has become. Loss of freedom and no meaningful cost savings."

Love how the CBO analyses of incomplete data, which are being used to assess and guide the various options in advance of a finished bill, are being cited as preemptive proof that NO PLAN CAN WORK.

I'm sure the slew of Republican health care counterproposals are much more fiscally sensib... oh.

No, the CBO analyses are only proving that YOUR Boy's plan can't work.

Right. If there's one plan, then why have there been multiple cost analyses from the same source?

If there's a single doomed Obama plan -- I mean, MY, um, "Boy" -- then why hasn't anyone seen this platonic ideal yet, let alone the Congressional Budget Office?
