    They changed their projections.. Projections are estimates. Therefor they can be wrong or right. And as stated earlier data changes...


    better they have debunked themselvesmon obamacare multiple times,they have came up with 2 opposites on stimulous spending,they have said obamacare would cause america to lose 4 milion jobs,even through conservative obamacare hating math thats really farfetched.

    not to mention i have never seen any math showing how cbo gets its results,if they disclose it,its obviously somewhere in the swiss alps in a library.
    You do realize that the organizations makes projections... PROJECTIONS....

    Is the CBO reliable?

    I'd say sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.

    A lot of it depends on the constraints put on it by congress. When making their economic forecasts the factors they are allowed to take into account are constrained by congressional mandate.

    but how are projections off but such extreme degrees,obviously it either shows incompetence or extreme bias depending on who cinducting what.between saving us hundreds of billions to costing us over a trillion even for a projection,then back again all in in less thn 4 years,shows extreme incompetence among their math.

    How is it "incompetence" or "bias" when they change the projections?
    You do realize its a non-partisan organization?

    they change projections as often as romney flip flops,how is that not innaccurate,especially since until the supreme court ruling,nothing in obama care changed,yet cbo findings 180'd eachother constantly.how can results vary so much from something that hasnt changed.

    on another note how can you call an organization that estimates a reliable source????

    my question is,can an organization that can be refuted by any independant organization and itself be reliable????cbo has said stimulous spending would hurt our economy,they have said not introducing stimulous will hurt our economy.they have said deficit reduction will hurt our economy,they have said obamacare will cost america 4 million jobs.


    at the same time they said obamacare will save us money,then break even,then say it will cost us hundreds of bilions,then over a trillion,then came back and said it will save us money??????????????????



    can an organization so inconsistent on predictions and so often proven wrong be considered accurate??????
    LOL What this, you're going to try prove the CBO wrong by consensus? ROTFL

    naw im trying to see how the community feels through the poll.

    i dont need a poll to know cbo is wrong,which for being bipartisan thus far only liberals have defended.

    i seriously stopped using it as a source reguardless on whether it agrees with me or not a few months ago,because everything i saw posted was debunked.

    PolitiFact Florida | TV ad says health law's cost is $2 trillion, 'double what we were promised'

    Actually, only part of the health care law -- the gross costs -- could cost up to $1.76 trillion. That’s only a slight increase from what was originally promised -- not close to double.

    Has congress asked them to? CBO | our processes

    Basically, if congress has not asked them to go back and look, they won't.

    The interesting thing about the CBO is that whenever they don't back up one sides arguement, then of course they must be biased and wrong. You are good example of this in action.
