This is the same organization that said Obamacare was quite the bargain, and we have found out just what a bargain it is.<quoted text>
Of course the Democrats has pointed out the cost benefits numerous times.
Here is a report from the non-partisan CBO that shows the Senate bill will reduce the deficit by $900B over the next 20 years. I am surprised you did not see this. It has been widely reported.
The CBO can only report on what it is told to report. We are not told what where the set conditions for the report.
If they were told to report on the cost of defense but to exclude the cost of ships, planes, bases, military benefits and bullets, you will get a CBO report that shows our current military is inexpensively run.
There is no break down of jobs that the illegals would get. It also excludes the cost of the illegals that will follow. Higher wage growth from what? You will see some wage growth due to inflation but .5% is thin gruel meaning many of these people will remain in poverty and will have to be subsidized through welfare and other benefits. Let us not forget unemployed American citizens, some displaced because of illegal labor, these people will be getting benefits as well. So a former illegal now getting the current minimum of $7.25 will be making $7.61.
I guess if you do not pay to close attention, the CBO report is just wonderful.
Maybe the CBO is supporting a plan to drive wages down so low that we can make cars cheaper then China.
