Oh, the Games People


House Budget Committee Ranking Republican Paul Ryan responds to an NRO query about the news this morning: “The Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that there is currently no official cost estimate…”

UPDATE: Now it’s out, but with quite the curious rhetorical bent…

…Although CBO completed a preliminary review of legislative language prior to its
release, the agency has not thoroughly examined the reconciliation proposal to verify its
consistency with the previous draft
. This estimate is therefore preliminary, pending a
review of the language of the reconciliation proposal, as well as further review and
refinement of the budgetary projections.

…that seems to say they’re not sure that what they estimated is what needed an estimation, since they’re not sure it’s the same.

Got that?
