    ... the economy would be about 30% larger today than it actually is.

    Remember "dynamic scoring"?

    I'm going from memory here on the 30% - because Heritage (whose staff apparently did the modeling) scrubbed their write-up of this bullshit from their website (probably an accident, right?), but I would think some economist somewhere would still have a copy.  

    It would be nice to reproduce those exhibits used to justify the Bush tax cuts in some prominent forums to call out just how totally absurd Bush-Romney economics has always been - relying completely on obvious "big lies."
