It amazes me that Speaker Ryan and party can not give a specific answer to questions like these. Do we not have all kinds of economists in our government? Are we that fly by night? Did they do any due diligence? This is a total GOP failure but I see the same thing when the Democrats are in charge. I honestly just think our government just throws shit out there to see what sticks.
I would expect an answer like: “Yes, we could pay for the deficit if we acheive a GDP of 3% or more for 3 straight years”. Something!!
This tax cut is going to cost 1.6 trillion dollars more to the deficit- are you saying that the growth we’re going to get from this tax cut will equal what we get from the deficit?
