On congress using CBO to deceive the public about the Affordable Care Act

In an earlier post, I predicted that some day someone will bet everything on a predictive model and lose everything. The loss will forever poison the concept of obedient following of evidence-based decision-making. The decision will be something major like passing the ACA. Congress promoted ACA as evidence-based and this interpretation was approved by the CBO. The ACA may provide that example of the decision that loses everything.
