    “Math is getting harder for Republicans pushing tax overhaul” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/the-finance-202/2017/11/08/the-finance-202-math-is-getting-harder-for-republicans-pushing-tax-overhaul/5a02015e30fb0468e76541af/ “Facing pushback from an array of multinational corporations, committee Republicans on Monday scaled back a provision in the bill meant to bar companies with globe-spanning operations from shipping U.S. profits abroad. That excise tax, which caught industry flat-footed when it appeared in the GOP plan unveiled last week, would have raised $154.5 billion over a decade — a substantial sum for lawmakers in need of new funding sources. But the Monday tweak drained more than 95 percent of that revenue, and the broader bill is now in the red by $74 billion.”
