Biden: big fucking deal.

Here’s the big fucking deal:


Decline of the empire is unimpressed by “a rounding error in the right direction:”

Although the bill solves most of the coverage problem, it accounts for a mere fraction of the cost problem. A report by the centrist policy group Third Way estimated that the Senate legislation would save more than $800 billion over the next 15 years. That’s consistent with the CBO’s expectation that the Senate legislation and the reconciliation fixes would save more than a trillion dollars over the next 20 years.

…. But the savings amount to no more than a rounding error given the tens of trillions of dollars we’re going to spend over that period. It’s half of 1 percent of expected GDP.

Never mind all the dead babies.

Also, never mind the phrase “expected GDP.”  So, yeah, big fucking deal.
