The CBO Bomb

by Rich Lowry

The CBO score is coming as soon as Monday. Everyone on the Republican side is expecting it, and expecting it to be very bad. No matter how much they think they are factoring in the effect of the score on the debate, though, there is no way to truly account for the political effect of the analysis. It could be thermonuclear, or it could be a relative fizzle. One way or the other, we will likely know much more about where this debate is headed by the end of next week.
