Douglas Holtz-Eakin is the former Director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), in the 2003-2005 timeframe, coincident with the term of David Walker, Comptroller General at the General Accountability Office.
Just now Douglas Holtz-Eakin made two statements on the record on television:
1) CBO is required by law to accept all assumptions directed by Congress. This includes blatantly false and totally unjustified assumptions about future circumstances.
2) The Obama Health Care bill is “the greatest money grab in history,” seeking to loot the young and leave them with a future debt they cannot handle.
This is the kind of truth the public has a right to expect from the President and his staff. Evidently not.
