Democrats will look right into the camera and tell the public that lowering taxes to increase revenue is a lie...never happened....a Republican myth.....etc.
The media will never correct the speaker(s).
We have exactly two brilliant people in this country who should either be in office or be shaping policy for those in office: Thomas Sowell and Newt Gingrich.
Needless to say, neither one of them is popular with the GOP-e. Personally, I think it’s because the latter group can’t understand a word they say (despite the fact that they are both excellent writers and everybody here on FR can certainly understand them).
I may expect too much from Dr. Sowell, he definitely knows better.
No, the CBO has no authority to correct Congress; as a result, they are "wrong" more often than not.
The CBO is obligated to analyze what they are given by Congress, including assumptions made, with double counting and absurd projections.
They may question only the math, not the absurd assumptions and future projections made.
