Judging the CBO
Doug Elmendorf, director of the CBO, responds to allegations that his organization underestimates savings, and other criticisms. Well worth a read.
Incidentally, it wouldn't be that hard for some nonprofit to go back through, say, the last two decades and compare the CBO's estimates of major bills to their real world impact. Jon Gabel did this for a few pieces of legislation, but doing it systematically would offer a much clearer picture of possible biases in their methods.
