Brendan Sasso, Spectrum auctions might be included in GOP’s payroll-tax bill, The Hill, December 7, 2011
Where is the CBO score of the Walden bill? I endlessly hear the bill’s proponents claim that it will bring in as much as $15 billion to the treasury. For example, that number was repeated numerous times by different lawmakers at the recent markup hearing chaired by Walden. But the CBO score wasn’t publicly available then and last time I checked a few days ago it still wasn’t available. Given all the funny games that get played with such CBO numbers, it’s vital that they be publicly disclosed.
