Agreed. But CBO projections are based upon a 1.9% annual growth rate. A rather robust number under Obomanomics given the high taxes, excessive mandates, terrible trade policies, and open borders for masses of low killed workers.

However that number is historically low, from WW2 up to Obama the number is 3.4%. At 2.6% this tax reform is revenue neutral.

I'm normally not a betting man without a golf club in my hand, but the bar is set very low and the odds are pretty good.

If you look at Simpson-Bowles the major differences are treating all capital gains as ordinary income, and the phase out of the ESI tax exclusion.

I would be hesitant to bet against America at this point in history. But here in this forum there are many rooting for failure.
