CQ Roll Call

CQ Budget Tracker: Tax Trouble
Should he win the presidency, Trump will need the help. The billionaire real estate mogul's first attempt at a tax-cutting plan was widely panned as unaffordable. The plan, which would slash marginal income tax rates and increase standard deductions to nearly four times current levels, is officially revenue neutral, according to an explanation on Trump's campaign website.
The problem for Trump is that virtually nobody outside the campaign finds the claim credible. The liberal-leaning Tax Policy Center, a joint venture of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, pegs the cost at $9.5 trillion over the first decade. The conservative-leaning Tax Foundation says the cost is even higher, reaching $10.1 trillion in the first 10 years — even after accounting for the economic growth that could be spurred. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a nonpartisan budget watchdog, says Trump's policies would add $11.5 trillion to the national debt in 10 years, mostly because of his tax cuts.
