Latest Scoops

Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you're picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.https://t.co/mYJtBZfxiu
The American people deserve to know how thi #GOPTaxScams will impact the economy and how it will affect middle-class familie @USTreasurys. promised an economic analysis – but this isn’t it. I look forward to the IG’s investigation providing real answers for American families.
To recap: After claiming repeatedly he had projections showing th #GOPTaxScame paid for itself, Mnuchin released a report showing that there were no such projections, and that even his own wildly optimistic made-up projections weren’t enough for the plan to pay for itself.
Where does the other half of the growth come from according t @USTreasuryo ? Partly from proposals that haven’t even been introduced in Congress and may never happen.
But it’s worse: even Mnuchin’s made-up numbers on the corporate tax changes only get Republicans halfway to the economic growth numbers they’re claiming.
Mnuchin’s projection is completely out of line with other projections. It's way higher than credible estimates, and even higher than right-wing projections that ignore the effect of the national debt on growth.
In other words: @USTreasury’s OTP couldn’t support Mnuchin’s claims about economic growth, so he just said it again without evidence.
Whil @USTreasurye ’s OTP made other projections in this report, it didn’t make the key projection that growth would go up about .35% annually thanks to the corporate tax changes in the GOP tax bill.
A bit of important background on this claim @USTreasury. includes the Office of Tax Policy (OTP). The OTP is staffed by non-political tax experts and economists, who are responsible for projecting the economic impact of changes to the tax code.
But how does the report show that economic growth WILL be 2.9% instead of 2.2% thanks to the GOP tax plan? It doesn’t! Instead @USTreasury, "expects approximately half " of this additional growth to come from corporate tax changes.
