Accounting ‘Gimmicks’ in G.O.P.’s Tax Overhaul Mask Higher Cost, Deficit Hawks Say

Such sleights of hand in accounting are more prevalent in the Senate plan, which makes many of its cuts temporary or delays their enforcement. For instance, the Senate bill delays the corporate tax cut, which will fall to 20 percent from 35 percent, by one year for savings of about $100 billion. It also saves about $240 billion by making the individual income tax cuts “temporary” and setting them to expire in 2025.Other tax breaks are phased in slowly or phased out. Businesses are allowed to fully expense only their capital investments, including equipment purchases, through 2022. And, beginning in 2024, the ability to carry net operating losses forward would be limited as a percent of taxable income. In 2026, research and experimental expenditures would have to be written off gradually, or amortized, rather than immediately deducted, which reduces the revenue hit to the federal budget.According the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the real cost of the Senate legislation that the Joint Committee on Taxation says will cost $1.41 trillion over a decade would be $2.2 trillion if all the temporary changes were made permanent. The group estimates that the nation’s debt, which has surpassed $20 trillion, would exceed the size of the economy by 2028 under the plan — a level the United States has not reached since World War II.Republican leaders in Congress and the Trump administration have acknowledged the budget maneuvers, saying they expect the temporary tax cuts to stay in place.“As a result of the reconciliation process and scoring and the Byrd Rule, there are certain parts of this that expire,” the Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said on CNBC on Friday. “But we have every expectation that down the road that Congress will extend them.” The Byrd rule refers to restrictions put in place by former Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia that prevent legislation that adds to the deficit in the long-term.To deficit hawks, underselling the true cost of tax cuts is counterproductive and potentially dangerous for the economy.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

U.S. Soldiers Were Separated From Unit in Niger Ambush, Officials Say

New details emerging from the military’s investigation into the ambush and interviews with military officials and lawmakers have revealed, once again, changes to the timeline in a shifting narrative that has bedeviled top Pentagon officials. It has prompted increasingly frustrated members of Congress to demand answers for how a shadowy mission in an austere region of Africa left four Americans and five Nigeriens dead, including the interpreter.The questions — including the mission’s shifting goals, the intelligence assessment to back it up, how the soldiers were separated and the frantic search for Sergeant Johnson’s body — were at the forefront on Thursday when senior military officers and their civilian Pentagon bosses traveled to Capitol Hill to give separate two-hour classified briefings for members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees.Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, who heads the Senate panel and who has criticized the Defense Department for failing to provide lawmakers details of the ambush, praised the briefing without divulging details.

Siding With Trump, Judge Clears Way for Trial Over Health Subsidies

The subsidies reimburse insurers for reducing deductibles, co-payments and other out-of-pocket costs for seven million low-income people who buy midlevel silver plans on the Affordable Care Act marketplace. Under the law, insurers will still have to provide the discounts, known as cost-sharing reductions, but may be unable to collect reimbursement from the government.Mr. Trump ordered federal officials two weeks ago to stop making the monthly payments. Another federal district judge, in Washington, ruled in 2016 that the payments were unconstitutional because Congress had never appropriated money for them.On Wednesday, Judge Chhabria concluded that “both sides have reasonable arguments’’ on the main legal question: Whether Congress appropriated money for the cost-sharing payments.Two senior senators, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, a Republican, and Patty Murray of Washington, a Democrat, announced last week that they had agreed on a bill to extend the cost-sharing payments through 2019 and make it easier for states to obtain waivers from requirements of the Affordable Care Act. After initially endorsing the deal, Mr. Trump backed off a day later, and the White House demanded changes as a condition of its support.The Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday that the Alexander-Murray bill would produce a modest reduction in federal budget deficits, but would not substantially change the number of people with coverage.The budget office estimated that the legislation would reduce deficits by a total of $3.8 billion over the next decade. With the deficit for the last fiscal year alone reaching $666 billion, that is a relatively small number, but supporters of the bill made the most of it.“The Congressional Budget Office has found that our proposal benefits taxpayers, it benefits consumers — not insurance companies,” said Mr. Alexander, the chairman of the Senate health committee.Continue reading the main storyThe proposal has broad support from Democratic senators and at least a dozen Republican senators […]

Tax Cuts Are Coming. So Are the Fights About Paying for Them.

Lowering the cap on 401(k) contributionsThe most recent idea to get caught in the game of legislative whack-a-mole was a proposal to dramatically lower the cap on the amount that workers can set aside in their 401(k) retirement accounts. Currently workers under 50 can set aside up to $18,000 a year without having to pay taxes up front on that money. House Republicans were discussing lowering that to $2,400.This creates both practical and political problems. Lowering the cap on 401(k) contributions would save only a sliver of the $1.5 trillion in lost revenue from the tax cuts that Republicans are pushing […]
