Um, about that CBO blogpost

A number of polibloggers have seized on this claim by the Director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) regarding appeal of ObamaCare©:

"(W)e expect that repealing that legislation would increase budget deficits."

Of course, they leave out the back-pedaling and obfuscation part:

"The administration's chief actuary predicts that the federal government and the country will spend $310 billion more under Obamacare than we would have without the new law"

Fine, but what strikes me as most interesting is this: the previous Congress, lead exclusively by the Democrat party, managed to rack up more debt than all the previous Congresses, combined!

And now they're worried about deficits?

There's your new definition of "chutzpah."
