    Quelle suprise.

  • Boritz

    Reminiscent of Beavis and Butthead not being able to score. That was due to their own stupidity though, not that of others.

  • S.C. Schwarz

    Working as intended.

    This will not prevent the left from taking credit for every good thing that happens in health care for the next 30 years. If anything bad happens it will be Bush’s fault.

    Maybe the bureaucrats at the CBO were overcome by conscience and rather than continuing to lie about it as being anything other than a calamity, said they can’t score it.

  • Andrew Allison

    One of the lesser-known but more applicable quotes of the 1st Lord Acton (he of “power corrupts . . .) in this context is, “And remember, where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that.” Does anybody seriously believe that the CBO can’t measure (as opposed to being prohibited from reporting) the budgetary cost of ACA? That the administration really can’t come up with the data regarding ACA enrollment? That the IRS can’t compare income reported on a tax return with that reported when applying for an ACA subsidy? That the Moon really is made of green cheese? Our government is not telling us the truth.

      I think they are admitting that, not only are there too many moving parts to track (too many variables), the Administration itself is adding to the confusion by waiving, delaying, modifying or ignoring the provisions and requirements of the ACA as it sees fit.
