Have you ever watched a game of Ping-Pong? Your head constantly swivels back-and-forth, following the ball as it (hopefully) passes over the net. That's kinda how it feels watching the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) whipsaw over how much repealing ObamaCare© will cost.

Er, save:

"The Congressional Budget Office, in an email to Capitol Hill staffers... has said that repealing the national health care law would reduce net spending by $540 billion in the ten year period from 2012 through 2021 ... Repealing the bill would also eliminate $770 billion in taxes."

The email comes in response to a request from Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI) that the CBO "score" the bill without all the double-counting of revenue and taxes that marked its initial take on the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act on which we reported yesterday.

Anyone know if ObamaCare© covers whiplash?
