Biden’s Build Back Better Act Decreases Budget Deficit!

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released today estimated budgetary effects of Title XIII, Committee on Ways and Means, H.R. 5376, also known as the badly named, but enlightened policy bill – the Build Back Better Act. BBBA according to CBO estimates would result in a net decrease in the unified deficit totaling $797.7 billion over the 2022-2031 period. That decrease in the deficit would result from an increase in direct spending of $411.5 billion and an increase in revenues of $1,209.3 billion.

This CBO estimate is based on language in two documents, which are available from the House Committee on Rules:
