The GOP House will be able to hide the true costs of tax cuts behind a debunked mantra that tax cuts pay for themselves through creative bookkeeping changes they have put in place. This will drive up the deficit and put more money into the pockets of those that need it least. I guess you aren’t the least bit surprised.
White House Budget Director Shaun Donovan said in a blog posting that adoption of dynamic scoring would “risk injecting bias” into a decades-old, non-partisan budget process.
“As a result, it could allow Congress to adopt legislation that increases federal deficits, while masking its costs,” Donovan said.
