CBO hires Obamacare advocate to provide ‘objective’ health care budget numbers


Recommended Posts

Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller has learned the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has hired Melinda Beeuwkes Buntin, an Obama administration official who has been key in implementing parts of Obamacare thus far and a large donor to Democrats and liberal groups, to work in its Health and Human Resources (HHR) Office. As CBO’s deputy assistant director of HHR, Buntin is expected to assist with the Office’s prime directive, providing “objective, nonpartisan, and timely analyses to aid in economic and budgetary decisions on the wide array of programs covered by the federal budget.”

It may be difficult for Buntin to provide such “objective” and “nonpartisan” statistics to members of Congress, though, given her partisan support of Obamacare and Democratic candidates. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, she donated $2,300 to President Obama in 2008, $4,000 to John Kerry’s White House bid in 2004, $9,500 to Democratic Party group DNC Services Group since 2004 and $3,300 to pro-abortion group EMILY’s list since 2004. Buntin was also a major donor Georgetown University professor and Democrat Judy Feder’s 2006 and 2008 House race challenges of Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolfe. Buntin gave Feder $7,050 between 2006 and 2008.

Buntin also donated $500 to South Carolina’s 2004 Democratic Senate candidate Inez Tenenbaum, who lost that election to Republican Jim DeMint.snip
