What happened is that the Democrats last week got away with murder when the Finance Committee bill came out and got the stamp of approval from the CBO…The tricks that the Democrats had included in the bill, which was (as McCain had pointed out) half a decade of [additional healthcare] expenditures, a full decade of [income from] receiving the taxation, made it look as if it came out OK, but, in fact, it is going to blow a huge hole in the budget.

Essentially claiming the bill won’t add to the deficit by paying for 5 years of the bill’s expenditures with 10 years tax revenue. Brilliant.
