Why is the CBO so Wrong?

I noted previously the the CBO has a terrible record estimating the effect of legislation. This video attempts to explain why this is.

As noted, even with dynamic scoring, results are likely to be wrong.  That is why I advocate for multiple estimates.  Our representatives could then have an intelligent debate and we could  more accurately evaluate the effect of proposed legislation.

As Dan points out it would be a great help if the CBO opened their estimates to scrutiny rather than hiding behind their so-called cloak of ‘non-partisanship’.  (It’s obvious that many of our government bureaucracies have been ‘captured’ by ‘progressives’ and there is no reason to think this isn’t true of the CBO!)
