Only in Washington Can Limiting the Growth of a Government Program Be Called A "Spending Cut"

The Congressional Budget Office released a report Thursday on the long-term spending effects of the Senate version of H.R. 1628, the Better Care Reconciliation Act. Unfortunately, Democrats and some in the mainstream media are already spinning the report, claiming that it shows that the bill will cut Medicaid spending. That's wholly inaccurate.

CBO Coverage Projections Have Been Wildly Wrong

Winston Churchill once said, “It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.” The reality that the future is hard to predict, but that has not stopped men and women from trying to do just that. Perhaps one of the best examples of that is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

House GOP Leaders' Health Care Alternative Falls Short on Coverage Numbers Because It Keeps ObamaCare's Architecture in Place

Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner and Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute have picked up on an important point from the Congressional Budget Office's score of House Republican leadership's ObamaCare "alternative," the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Klein and Cannon note that more people would have health insurance coverage under the 2015-2016 repeal bill, H.R. 3762, than under the AHCA.

Rundown of the CBO's Score of House Republican Leaders' ObamaCare Replacement

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its much-anticipated score of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Over the next ten years, the CBO estimates that federal revenues will decline by $882.8 billion as a result of the repeal, delay, or zeroing out of most of ObamaCare's taxes, and federal spending will be reduced by $1.219 trillion. Overall, the deficit would be reduced by $336.5 billion from FY 2017 through FY 2026 under the proposed legislation.

Budget Deficit for FY 2016 Higher Than Originally Projected

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has revised its budget deficit projection for FY 2016 upward, according to a recent report.

The latest projection shows that the budget deficit for FY 2016 will rise to $590 billion, or a nearly 35 percent increase.
