Ryan tells Fox News he hasn’t got the time to explain how he and Romney will pay for their tax plan
For all his celebrated wonkishness, the Janesville Genius can be strangely evasive at times, as was the case HERE:
For much of the general election, the Romney campaign has avoided any discussion of specifics, especially when it comes to the tax plan that he and Paul Ryan have put forward. On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace gave Ryan an opportunity to finally talk about the details of his plan to a national audience, how much it will cost and how the Romney administration would pay for it.
Instead, Ryan said he didn’t have time to get into the nuts and bolts of the proposal.
Ryan’s refusal to talk specifics only lends further credibility to the various studies and reports that have found time to do the math. And as ThinkProgress has reported, those studies from non-partisan organizations show that the Romney/Ryan tax plan would actually result in a huge tax cut for the wealthiest Americans. And the only way to keep it revenue neutral is to balance their plan on the backs of middle class families, who would see a tax increase of more than $2,000.
