On Monday, after an unexplained delay, the Treasury Department released a one-page document it called an "analysis of growth and revenue estimates" of the Republican tax plan, agreeing with the Trump administration that, under certain circumstances, there will be annual economic growth of 2.9 percent, more than enough for the plan to pay for itself over 10 years. Most economists do not expect growth to be that robust, and congressional tax analysts have estimated the plan would add $1 trillion to the federal deficit. The conservative Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget said the document "makes a mockery of dynamic scoring and analysis," while Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called it "nothing more than one page of fake math."
