NO SHIT!!

Congress too often makes the mistake of blindly following projections of the Congressional Budget Office that later prove to be grossly inaccurate. The CBO's reputation among the public and the media may be strong, but its track record in providing accurate estimates to Congress leaves much to be desired.

I think it's safe to say that any projections from the government should be taken with a grain of salt.  They tend to be a tad skewed as needed.

How can anyone expect the CBO to be accurate when predicting what will happen in ten or 20 years.

Grains of salt needed to accompany any CBO projection.
