I think that Robert Gibbs just dissed the CBO. The question from the press regarded the fact that the reason some dems are holding back their vote is that they aren't convinced that the CBO estimate takes into consideration the long term savings and cost of the bill. Gibbs proceeded to say that the CBO most often comes in short as to the savings realized on these things. He essentially said that they're counting on the savings numbers being higher than reported....and I suppose at the same time they're counting on the spending costs being lower.

And then, in their routine double speak, he ended by saying that Obama has the utmost respect for the CBO's analysis and is glad that they're waiting for those numbers.
