No official CBO numbers out, but Democrats are claiming that there are
In response to a query from NRO, Congressman Paul Ryan states:
The Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that there is currently no official cost estimate. Yet House Democrats are touting to the press—and spinning for partisan gain—numbers that have not been released and are impossible to confirm. Rep. James Clyburn stated he was ‘giddy’ about these unsubstantiated numbers. This is the latest outrageous exploitation by the Majority—in this case abusing the confidentiality of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office —to pass their massive health care overhaul at any cost.
