Where Are the Positive Economic Projections From the Debt Deal?

Since the debt deal, we've seen many economic houses and analysts lower their projections for overall US growth, but no major upward revisions -- at least, none that I've seen.

Has anyone seen a credible, non-think tank, upward revision to a GDP projection since the debt deal was passed, where the passage of the debt deal was the catalyst for the upward revision? Anyone? Do these revisions include their assumptions, or are they just spouting off (writing an opinion without basing it on any economic assumptions)? No assumptions = non credibility.

Please post sightings in the comments.
