This information was released by the CBO in a letter response to Rep. Paul Ryan (R.-Wisc.) who requested the agency to score the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
CBO Director Douglas W. Elmendorf wrote Ryan "Under CBO's current economic assumptions and assuming that none of the direct budgetary effects of H.R. 1 are offset by future legislation, CBO estimates that the government's interest costs would increase by $0.7 bilion in fiscal year 2009 and by a totaly of $347 billion over the 2009-2019 period."
