Ezra Klein talks with Director of the CBO

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has been in the news plenty lately in reference to its estimates concerning the effects of health care reform policy on the national budget. This interview between Ezra Klein and the director of the CBO Doug Elmendorf gives a good cursory overview of what the CBO does, including how it deals with the politics that surround it.

I found it interesting.
