Steve Moore is a winger supply-side moron! And he is widely discredited by those who actually understands economics and tax policy.
He's just a broom pusher walking behind the GOP elephant.
So I understand why you bought it!

Politico reported that Donald Trump is tapping conservative economic pundits Stephen Moore and Larry Kudlow to assist in remaking the presumptive Republican nominee’s tax plan, which has been lambasted as a budget-busting giveaway to high-income earners and corporations.
Media should be aware that both Moore and Kudlow have long histories of playing fast and loose with the facts while making outlandish and incorrect claims about the economy.
Trump Tapped Two Discredited Economists To Rebuild His Disastrous Tax Plan
Politico: Trump Picks Conservative Media Darlings Steve Moore And Larry Kudlow To Re-Write His Tax Reform Plan. Politico reported that Donald Trump has tapped conservative economic pundits Steve Moore and Larry Kudlow to revise Trump’s tax plan, which, in its current form, would expand the deficit by $10 trillion over the next decade and has come “under criticism from both the right and left for vastly expanding the deficit.” From the May 11 edition of Politico:
Trump’s initial proposal, rolled out with fanfare at Trump Tower in Manhattan last September, has been in the spotlight since he became the presumptive Republican nominee last week and promptly declared that it was only a starting point for any negotiations with congressional Democrats, should he become president.
But it turns out Trump’s team is open to revamping it far sooner than that; the campaign last month contacted at least two prominent conservative economists — Larry Kudlow, the CNBC television host, and Stephen Moore of the Heritage Foundation and a longtime Wall Street Journal writer — to spearhead an effort to update the package.
Trump’s initial plan has come under criticism from both the right and left for vastly expanding the deficit, with the nonpartisan Tax Foundation estimating it would add $10 trillion to the federal deficit in the next decade. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton has moved quickly to tattoo the plan’s steep price tag onto Trump, with her team holding a call on Monday calling it a reckless expansion of debt.
