AP The Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday that the immigration bill currently being debated in the Senate would reduce the federal budget deficit by $875 billion over the first 20 years it becomes law.

The CBO said in its official scoring of the bill that it would reduce the deficit by $175 billion in its first 10 years of existence. Over the next decade, it would provide an additional $700 billion of deficit reduction.

That amounts to 0.2% of GDP.

If the bill becomes law, the CBO estimated that about 10.4 million people would come to the United States as new immigrants. And it would legalize about 8 million people who currently live in the country as unauthorized immigrants.

The CBO's scoring of the bill pleased immigration reform advocates, the Senate "Gang of Eight" sponsors of the bill, and President Barack Obama.

Isn’t the CBO the same bozos who told us that ObamaCare was going to come in under a trillion bucks? ROTFL! I guess they weren’t very good at math when they went to school.

I’m convinced the Resident from the Muslim Brotherhood has SCOTUS, much of Congress and many agency heads imPRISMed. Tyranny is here, now. I’m sorry you served your country only to see it come to this.

A 20-year economic forecast? Seriously, a fortune teller at some carnival has a better chance of guessing something twenty years out. This is just being thrown out as political cover or a peg on which a Congressman can hang his hat in rationalizing to voters why he or she passed this illegal immigrant amnesty program.

I don’t give a flying FIG about how much it is projected to save in costs. THAT IS NOT what this is about.

Exactly! I suppose these people see a border fence as the reason why we are in debt as well. So, let's just open the borders to China, Pakistan and every other nation. Let's just make a law that says no matter where you live, no matter where you were born you are by default an American citizen and have the right to move here anytime. I suppose we could erase our debt in a few months according to the CBO and Marco Rubio.

But, as you say, THAT IS NOT what this is about.

” I don’t give a flying FIG about how much it is projected to save in costs. THAT IS NOT what this is about. This isn’t an appropriations bill or a healthcare bill. This is about protecting a sovereign nation from illegal entry. If it IS a spending bill, where is the line item for building the fence?”

Well done, Sue!

More likely a nation of disinterested drones. The producers will eventually give up.

So the ObamaCare accountants have moved on to putting fake figures on their immigration spreadsheets. This is what happens when accountants don’t have to worry about auditors.
