According to Heritage Blog— Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) asked the Congressional Budget Office to estimate the impact of permanently extending the 20 most popular provisions of the stimulus bill. What did the CBO find? …The true 10 year cost of the stimulus bill $2.527 trillion in in spending with another $744 billion cost in debt servicing.
