Mulvaney: deficit-neutral tax changes insufficient for growth, we need new deficits
quote:

If we simply look at this as being deficit-neutral, you’re never going to get the type of tax reform and tax reductions that you need to get to sustain 3 percent economic growth.

quote:

I’ve been very candid about this. We need to have new deficits because of that.

Does this matter?

It only matters to Republicans when a Democrat is in the White House, and vice versa.

Cut taxes as low as we can get passed

Is Mulvaney being misunderstood here?

That is, static analysis leads to deficits though the 10 year period whereas dynamic scoring with 3.0% growth leads to larger deficits early but smaller deficits later and overall lower to neutral deficits 10 years later?

that doesn't sound like what he's saying here, since the relevant hurdle for them is the 10-year window. and cbo uses dynamic by rule on major legislative changes like this, or if requested by a budget committee chairman

sounds like he's pretty clearly talking about what kind of thing needs to happen to achieve 3%. the growth assumption is the basis for faster revenue growth in the dynamic score, but the growth assumption itself actually needs to be plausible to begin with.

it does seem to follow that he thinks even with the assumption of 3% sustained, 10-year deficit-neutral isn't actually attainable from tax cuts. and that seems likely correct to me
