Our entire economy is based on fraud. The one that got my blood roiling was the CBO's budget and deficit forecast, released yesterday.

Now I know that the CBO's hands are tied and it's "Garbage in, garbage out" in terms of underlying assumptions fed to them by the executive branch. However, these bastards released a forecast based on 5% GDP growth by 2027. We haven't had a year of 5% GDP growth since Reagan's first term.

If that isn't a fraud, I am not sure what is.
