Even Chris Wallace thinks Mitt Romney's "six studies" on his tax policy are "questionable."
In an interview with Romney campaign advisor Ed Gillespie, Wallace said that the studies "are hardly non-partisan."
Gillespie had just echoed Romney regarding the supposed "six studies" on his plan for an across-the-board tax cut. Romney has repeatedly used those studies to dispute the non-partisan Tax Policy Center's conclusion that his tax cut would cost $5 trillion over 10 years, or require a tax increase for middle-income Americans.
Several of those studies are not really studies, but blog posts or Op-Eds; one is by Romney's campaign advisers, most are not non-partisan, including one from the conservative think tank the American Enterprise Institute.
In one exchange, Wallace asked Gillespie about that study:
Wallace: "You wouldn't say that AEI is a conservative think tank?"
Gillespie: "I would say that it is a right-leaning think tank, that doesn't make it not credible."
Wallace: "It doesn't make it non-partisan."
Gillespie: "It does make it non-partisan. It is not a partisan organization."
