White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that the official score from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on President Biden’s Build Back Better Act was a “fake score” because it assumes that the social programs from the bill would be made permanent.
“So the President says that the Build Back Better is not going to add a penny to the deficit. The CBO has this new score, where they assume that social programs are going to be made permanent and in that case, it would add almost $3 trillion,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “So does that mean that President Biden will commit that these programs are not going to be made permanent?”
“Well, first of all, what we’re talking about here is a fake CBO score,” Psaki claimed, “that is not based on the actual bill that anybody is voting on.”
“The President has conveyed very clearly multiple times publicly, that he would like programs if they’re extended to be paid for,” Psaki added. “That remains his commitment. But it’s important to understand that when you when anybody raises a question about this new CBO score, it is a fake score about a bill that doesn’t exist.
And we should really focus on the actual bill everybody’s going to vote on and considering in Congress right now.”
It should be noted that in 2010, then-vice president Biden said that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) was the “gold standard.”
“I don’t know one single serious econometric model, from the conservative to the liberals, who would acknowledge anything other than we created a minimum of 1.6 million jobs to – and the estimates from the CBO, which is really a, as you know, the gold standard – no Republican or Democratic questions it – that say we created or saved over two million jobs,” Biden said during an interview with Larry King.
