The CBO Report the Biased Media DOESN’T Want to Talk About

The media breathlessly reports on every Congressional Budget Office report that comes down the pike on the Republican healthcare effort, but we can’t help but notice that they’ve largely ignored a new analysis that was quietly released by the federal agency. Perhaps because this one has quite a lot of positive news regarding the Trump agenda and its effect on the American economy. In other words, it doesn’t leave a lot of room for the doomsday punditry that has become the bread-and-butter of every fake, mainstream news outlet on the East Coast.

But for Americans who would actually like to get a real sense of where this administration is going on the things that matter, the new report is well worth perusing. It has a lot to say about the White House’s proposed budget for 2018, and there’s meat in here for every red-blooded conservative – NeverTrumper or not.

According to the analysis, if Congress were to pass Trump’s budget, it would reduce the federal deficit by $160 billion over the next ten years while ALSO increasing the Gross Domestic Product. This would be accomplished by cuts to both mandatory and discretionary spending, moves that would also take a chisel to our soaring national debt. The budget could potentially cut the debt to 80% of our GDP, which would slide 11 percentage points under the recommended CBO baseline figure. And by cutting federal expenditures in the sectors of healthcare, student loans, and income security programs, the Trump budget could reduce mandatory spending by nearly $2 trillion.

“The largest savings—$1.25 trillion over the 2018-2027 period—would stem from the proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act,” the CBO report said. “Additional 10-year savings of $610 billion would result from changes to the Medicaid program.

“The lower federal borrowing, relative to that projected under current law, would increase national saving, domestic investment, and the capital stock, thereby boosting output and income slightly and lowering interest rates somewhat,” the report continued. “As a result, average growth in inflation-adjusted GDP over the 2018-2027 period would be about 0.1 percentage point higher under the President’s proposals than under CBO’s baseline. GDP would be little changed through calendar year 2021 and 0.7 percent higher in 2027. Those economic effects would help reduce the deficit.”

Of course, a lot of this is dependent on Congress actually carrying through with the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, and that’s still very much up in the air. If they can get that bill across the finish line and tackle the tax reforms that most of the GOP is (apparently?) behind, we could see a boom period for the American economy that would have been unimaginable only a year or two ago. Let’s hope Washington has the political willpower to put this country back on the right track.

  1. Tired of all the Negative publicity and collusion stories about Foreign Countries and no prosecution of the “Real Criminals” Why not show “REAL PROGRESS” That has actually taken place since President Trump has been elected to office by publishing the accomplishments that have happened and are scheduled to happen that will benefit even the disbelievers and the “Never Trumpers”.
    Let’s get some positivity moving so America can be Great again !!

    • Only 2 things wrong with your post! We have NO true journalists and the DemoCRAPS/ LibTURDS use their “BOUGHT and PAID for Lame Stream Media!!
      “TRUE, HONEST TO GOD, TRUE JOURNALISM DIED QUITE A FEW YEARS BACK”!!

      In actuality they are closer to being like the Russian Izvestia and RIA Novostiy, Gov.’t spin or Pravda if you like the tabloid news!!

      Lame Stream Media:
      CNN – Communist Nonsense Network or Certified NON-complete Nonsense or Calumny Nonsense Network *** or “Counterfeit Nonsense Network” OR “Childish Nonsense Network” or “Crap NOT News”
      or Cesspool Nonsense Network
      CBS – Communist Broadcast System or Calumny Broadcast System *** or Corrupted Bull Sheit
      ABC – Accredited B.S. Channel or Anarchists Bullying Channel or Always Broadcasting Communism
      NBC – No Broadcasting Credibility or Nothing But Conjecture or Nothing But Corruption or Nothing But Crap!!!
      MSNBC – Main Stream National BullChit Channel! Most Stupid Numbed Brain Channel! Many SMALL Numbed Brain Cells or More Snotty Nonsense By Chicks.
      PBS-Premeir B.S.
      NPR- National Propaganda Reporting
      What do they all have in common?? ANYTHING negative about the DimmiWITZ or positive about a Republican WILL NEVER see air time!!

      Other then that great post!

      • I like the :
        C-Certified
        N-Nut
        N-Network
        This is where we find all of our ALT-LEFT UNHINGED PUKE FOR BRAINS NUT JOBS…
        M-Mentally
        S-Sick
        N-Nut
        B-Butt Holes
        C-Corporation
        Yes this is where we find the rest of the ALT-LEFT UNHINGED PUKE FOR BRAINS NUT JOBS..

  2. Liberals have managed to make it appear that a relatively small number of leftist fringe nutjobs make up most of America. Using their bought and paid for media and it’s constant propaganda, an army of idle, unemployed paid protestors, illegals, professional trolls and those who have nothing better to do than call companies and government agencies over and over again in order to mislead them into believing they are the majority, they’re not. We are. But we are adults, and far to busy actually making the world go round, working, contributing and paying taxes to waste time screaming, yelling, complaining, blocking traffic and burning cities in an all out effort to continue leaching off producers, us. Maybe it’s time we turned the tables on these terrible people, and their media. Maybe it’s time we make our voices heard.

    • Easier said than done and especially with the so-called news media.

      • Don’t be afraid to share the good news with others. Use signs and decals on your car. It works. We get many thumbs-up for our positive Trump signs.

        • Are you goofy??? Put a Trump decal on your vehicle is a “SURE WAY TO GET IT TRASHED!! Wear a Trump cap is a sure way to get your A– handed to you!!
          Both of the above by DemoRATZ/ SnowFlakes/ LibTURDS!!
          As much as I love Trump, I value my vehicle and my A– more!! I’m 66 and don’t run as fast as I once could plus my family would also be put in harms way which is why I initially asked “Are You Goofy”?
          Nothing like putting a “Bulls Eye” on your car or self!

          • Nothing like running in fear is there old codger? Stand up for what you believe! Support President Trump or be prepared to become a communist country. I don’t know about you; but, I do NOT want socialism/communism in my country!

          • Aristophanes,
            . . . . I do stand up for President Trump but I won’t take foolish risks. I wish that I had a 9mm or 45 and a AK 47 that uses NATO and US bullets. I can’t afford them.
            . . . . Not only are the commies, aka as the demokrauts, and liberals a clear and present but the muslims are also a clear and president danger to the US and the world. Did you know that it is against Federal Law for muslims to be here?
            GOD Bless and GOD Help us,
            rich!

          • Not liberals – leftist totalitarians.

            The only downside of a .45 is that the ammo is a little heavier to carry per each round over the 9mm – but the knockdown power of the .45 makes up for it.

          • But you can keep emailin, tweeting, faxing, and calling your congressman and tell them to “SUPPORT TRUMP’s policies NOW or you will be voted out!” This can make a difference if enough people do it.

          • Dennise Johnston

            We do cling to our guns and bibles here too😉

          • I believe in Trump also BUT the SnowFlakes and Libturds travel in packs like rabid dogs and skunks but I won’t take foolish risks!!! I’m 66 AND NOT ABOUT TO GET MY ASS KICKED BY SEVERALYOUNG SNOT NOSED BRATS nor my vehicle destroyed just to prove a point!! Do you jump into bull pens a wave red flags/ capes in front of them????????????????

          • The analogy does not apply here. Although, on 2nd thought, maybe it does. All I am saying is do not let theses “people” determine what you will or will not do. Do not live in fear.

          • Keep calling and emailing your congressman and tell them to stand behind Trump
            or you and your friends and family will vote them out! (I get why you may not want
            to put a sticker on your auto – I seen what happened to a few people already – not pretty).

          • How many people have had their butts kicked for wearing a red ball cap with “MAGA” on it???????

          • Open your eyes THEY are here.

          • ….that’s why you carry

          • Sad but true.

          • Dennise Johnston

            Depends on where you live. In Tennessee it’s a badge of honor!😊

        • No, not on your car put it on the DemoRATZ/ SnowFlakes/ LibTURDS cars. But don’t get caught. I will never trash my own car with stickers.

    • I just did a quick perusal of current national financial graphs and other related analysis in order to compare the obamba Regime with the first 6 months of President Trump. True, it takes time to get good data, but it shouldn’t take this long as we got obamba’s bogus data within a month, or so after it was “manufactured”.

      There’s a dearth of data since President Trump took office and all the obamba Regime’s “Questionable” data is all you get, at least, for now.

      Looks like most of the economic reporting guys have gone dark . . . . wonder why? 🙂

    • Dennise Johnston

      It’s far past that time! We the people will stand with our president and I pray it doesn’t come to the day we are having to do it in the streets! But make no mistake we the people will not give up our country without a fight!

  3. Yes! It is high time that we go after the KNOWN criminals, and stop the witch hunt against the Trump administration!
    If it’s sedition or treason the media seeks, they only have to look to the DNC, the Clinton cartel, and THEMSELVES! The present job of the media is to misdirect the public in the direction that the democrats, the socialists, and the deep state wants them to go. They are playing their role in this deception, at someone’s instruction?

  4. DAMNED COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ,YOU STARTED THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • They AGREE with it, but it was actually started in 1871 with the Act of 1871 — and our true government never has re-convened since they passed that and DC was born to be the seat of the corporate government owned by Europeans. They have “ruled” under stealth for 146 years now. The debt is of their corporation, named “THE UNITED STATES”, does NOT belong to us or our country, nor do they have any legal standing, legitimacy or even jurisdiction, since the government of DC was set up to be under European Law, but was a municipal government. DC NEVER has had jurisdiction outside of its borders, and EVERY career politician has been an officer of the corporation in DC ever since 1871, 22 February to be exact. Interesting consequences to a fictitious entity with NO sovreignty claiming that we are “citizens” belonging ti IT, when we DO have sovereignty — check out Baron vs THE UNITED STATES (corp name), a case Baron won in the Supreme Court. The finding was that if a non-sovereign tries a sovereign for anything like criminality, the court and its officers and government officers are liable for any damages done to the one tried (due to the trial)! They have no authority, and actually use a variant of contract law to pass statutes, which is ALSO invalid due to the fact that they start with the claim that they are our government, which they are NOT. Contract law MUST be transparent to be valid, not based on a lie that any signatories to the contractual agreements are unaware of.

  5. I am afraid if you want the good news out….we are going to have to blow our own horn. The news media is owned, and controlled, by Lucifer, who also controls the Democrats. Its not to their advantage to reveal the truth. The truth would make them look bad. The truth would give hope to all of America, and to every freedom loving country in the world. The soaring stock market, the economy, the jobs being created, the illegals whom are afraid to commit crimes for fear of being prosecuted. No they will not give out the true statistics on these accomplishments!

  6. It’s only too obvious that the mainstream media is bought and paid for. Reporters have become mere puppets of a anti-American political machine posing as news networks. The public which they were intended to serve are victims of their lies and deceit. The same could be said of the Democrat Party. They lie, steal and cheat for their own political gain and are traitors to America. Maybe it would be fair and honest to throw a few “Rhinos” in with them. It’s our government and our media that we the people need to reform and bring the Judeo-Christian values back to our Nation.

  7. THE CBO IS A USELESS DEPARTMENT THAT WE TAX PAYERS HAVE HAD THE UNFORNUTATE DISPLEASE OF PAYING FOR. THIS DEPARTMENT NEEDS TO SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATLEY. THE ARE NEVER RIGHT AND I DONT THINK ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND TRUST ANYTHING THEY HAVE TO SAY. REALLY IF THEY SHUT THEIR DOORS TODAY AND TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS WHO WOULD LOOSE ANY SLEEP. I AM 57 YEARS OLD AND I CANT TELL YOU WHEN THIS AGENCY DID ANY THING FOR ME BUT TAKE MY MONEY.

  8. The CBO is supposed to be non-partisan, but I doubt it very much. They sure screwed up with their numbers on Obama Care. It is impossible to find an honest government organization from the Executive, Legislative, & Judicial branches. The government is FUBAR & SNAFU. They are not a government of the people, but a government for themselves.

    • Of course they are, they are a European-owned corporation named “THE UNITED STATES” which was put in with DC created as their HQ in 1871. What can you expect from THEM?

  9. The CBO is a bad joke. They sure screwed up on the numbers for Obama Care.

  10. schumer and durbin need to go if there is to be any working together of both parties ,and a couple republicans. The liberals are pathetic all they want to do is take care of themselves ,they could care less about the country.Schumer is a sick individual a known communist ,durbin is just a disgusting yes man ,both of whom like to fabricate stories’ and mislead people . Bernie Sanders is a total nut job who should be mounted on a coo coo clock ,he’s nothing but a rich socialist who just wants to be the head dictator in chief .To get rid of the negativity the country has to get rid of the democratic party ,they have self destructed themselves with all the corruption and scandals they are responsible for . The jliberals are holding up the hole country ,by playing their little mind games
    We need to change the colleges in this country from being taught the liberal ways . The college kids are easily influenced inn there way of thinking and the liberal leaders all know this and have set the colleges up for this indoctrination . The Federal Government should stop any funding to all colleges that teach liberalism

  11. Dear Dobbs – The informed KNOW what’s going on – just keep reporting on the facts – Comey is getting millions for throwing law enforcement and people under the bus for his buddies – McCain is getting his and it isn’t the VA or obozocare – MSM is getting theirs for their help to destroy the US and keep the morons in power – Lefties are getting their funding from soros and his buddies to do nothing but attack working people – etc…….Make’em do community service as part of their degree programs and scholarships – Peace Corps duty in Iraq – Afghan – Syria – Venezuela – Cuba and other places will wake them up to JUST HOW GOOD THE US IS…….

  12. ———– MAGA —————-

  13. Let the poor die – preferably of seriously painful diseases – they clearly don’t understand the ‘American Dream’.

  14. The News Media in America today is pathetic! These fools have an agenda that is going to come back and bite them hard! They are liars, they are intellectually dishonest, they are abusive, they are slanderous, they are rash, they are immoral, they are abusive and they are absolute fools! They will lose everything!

  15. By all means, reduce the federal deficit. It’s the only sane thing to do.

  16. Once you give people free stuff, you can never stop giving free stuff. Most liberals in their twisted minds are always the victims, even if their the villan, thus their always entitled to free stuff, then of course more free stuff. Liberals hold amongst their numbers at least half the rich folks and celebs, they pay very little taxes, but they support the dying out middle class paying for the you owe me the victim liberals seeking to can collect. The democrats tell people who get free stuff, the GOP will take away your free stuff we will give you more cause you deserve more free stuff. Of course college kids that think they deserve free stuff, and of course minorities who demand free stuff cause their always the victims, they can get them more free stuff. The democrats like Obama lie that they paid off the deficit when we all know they doubled the national deficit and balanced only an annual budget with new taxes, but that is ok for the left, will only accept the lie as reality. If Senator Warren, or Harris get elected president there will be loads of more free stuff, Warren will forgive your college loans for voting democratic, or Harris who is another black racist like Obama will knock down prisons and build luxury universities for convicted drug dealers. Harris like Zobama and half the goons on the black congressional Caucasus do not represent the proud hard working black American families, the middle class that struggled and made it. However, Senator Harris knows, she is brilliant like Obama, not as sneaky, but brilliant, Harris tells us in this white racist society, how black Americans are thrown into prison for selling nickel bags of grass, who could not believe her after all Obama released over a thousand major drug lords on life sentences, since racism made then get life in jail. Yup, American is a “F en” mess and one guy did this to this nation. He ought to be in prison, but we must now write make believe history of how a scumbag saved us instead of how he destroyed a nation in only eight years time. The left demands we must accept and live a lie, or else?

  17. It is an indictment of how corrupt most of our American institutions have become over the past ten decades. The increasingly horrible leadership of these corrupt institutions have set the tone and created role models for proceeding leaders.

  18. Good deal this is what our country needs

  19. Stephen Kirtland

    The prognosis looks good, but remember that the “non-partisan” CBO haven’t exactly set the accounting standards for economic analysis. Based on proven economic truths, President Trump’s budget and cost cutting programs should result in the type of progress that the CBO predicts. However, never underestimate the ability of the republicans in congress to snatch “defeat from the jaws of victory.” They are so often misled, misinformed and disorganized that I fear for the passage of the Trump budget, even with republican majorities in both houses. It ought to be a stroll, but we have to keep our eyes on congress. Flood your senators and representatives with email, snail mail and phone calls until they do the right thing by us, for a change.

  20. Considering what we see daily on the Lame Stream Media, Is it too late to drain the SWAMP? Is congress elected to serve the people or are they elected to FLEECE the working man? Congress has given themselves enough perks.

  21. This is guardedly optimistic news about the economy .
