Washington, D.C.—Today on Twitter, Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA), Vice Chair of the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee, responded to a news report about the White House's refusal to release updated economic projections this summer—breaking precedent, according to Administration sources, because the economy is too volatile.

According to experts, this is the first time since at least the 1970s that a White House has refused to release these projections, which would be made public a few months ahead of the November election.
