CBO Numbers

The CBO issued a report on the savings when eliminating Obamacare. They state:

CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have completed an estimate of the direct spending and revenue effects of the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act of 2017, an amendment in the nature of a substitute to H.R. 1628, which would repeal many provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). According to the agencies’ analysis, enacting the legislation would decrease deficits by $473 billion over the 2017-2026 period

Yet if you look at what they reported a day ago the savings would be almost $600 billion per-year! How can anyone believe these folks! What number is ever real! Well it is Washington after all.
