Where is the CBO score?
There were hints the score would come last week. The by the weekend. Then Monday. Then Tuesday. Earlier today, Talking Points Memo reported that “multiple sources in the House and Senate” said to expect a score by “late today.” NBC’s Luke Russert just tweeted that the score would be out by 7:30 p.m. today.
I’ll believe it when I see it. It seems adjusting the Senate bill via a reconciliation package is a little more complicated than the Speaker expected. Politico’s Ben Smith reports the head of the AFL-CIO is about to be briefed again, a sign that expected changes to the Cadillac tax are not going as smoothly as Democrats had hoped.
