Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blasted the Treasury Department's analysis of the Republican tax bill as "fake math," the Washington Examiner noted.

"No amount of fake math can change the fact that the Republican tax bill will be a boon to the wealthiest Americans and largest corporations all while increasing taxes for millions of middle-class families and leaving 13 million Americans without healthcare," Schumer said.

The Treasury Department, in its one-page analysis, said the Senate tax reform package would pay for itself, while actually boosting revenue by $300 billion over 10 years, The Washington Times reported.

He reiterated his remarks in a tweet:
