Tax Specialist Martin Sullivan: Romney Tax Plan Is 'Not Mathematically Possible'

Another economist has joined the chorus of analysts saying that Mitt Romney's tax plan doesn't add up.

"I like tax reform. I want to broaden the base. It's something I've devoted my life to," Martin A. Sullivan, chief economist at Tax Analysts, told The New York Times. "I welcome Gov. Romney and the Republicans' strong push, but the plan doesn't work out. It's not mathematically possible."

Sullivan told the NYT that the Tax Policy Center, which found that Romney's tax plan is mathematically impossible, has it right. The article noted that it's not only Sullivan that's convinced by the Tax Policy Center paper. Economists from all sides of the political spectrum -- including from the conservative American Enterprise Institute -- find its claims to be trustworthy.

Other economists and pundits that say that Romney's plan is mathematically impossible include Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, and conservative writer David Frum.

Instead of all this focus on the day to day horse race, there should be just a bit more attention to the fact that Romney's economic plan is full of lies and impossible math that does not add up.

1. Where was this guy in 2001 and 2003?

Guess they've just about worn out that trickle down charade, so Romney's had to come up with another hoax.
