Still no CBO numbers on health reform?
The Congressional Budget Office was supposed to issue its report on the reconciliation bill yesterday. That got postponed until today. It's now 5:30PM and still no score. No/Nothing Repubs and other right wingers are yelling that Democrats have not released the CBO report because cost/savings are not what Democrats need to have to pass health reform. Some are saying that the CBO scores the reconciliation a billion dollars short through 2014. If that is true, then Demos just have to find a billion dollars and do it quick or else.....well, we don't want to think about that.
