The Numbers Don't Add Up | The Romney Tax Cut

The arithmetic has been checked and double-checked by the independent Tax Policy Center, and the numbers on the Romney/Ryan tax plan do not, and cannot come anywhere close to what Mr. Romney keeps promising. 

The double-checking even factored in the numbers recommended by the other economists Mr. Romney referred to in the first debate. Even those rosy projects don't get anywhere close — not even remotely close — to the results the Governor promised.

Here's a helpful overview courtesy of the Obama campaign. But you don't have to take their word for it. Read the two reports above to see how failure (including higher deficits and greater debt) is baked into the promise because it's baked into the numbers.
