Video: Rep. Paul Ryan Refuses to Explain Mitt Romney's Tax Plan: "Would Take Too Long"

Appearing on Fox News on Sunday, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan claimed that Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney has provided specifics for his tax plan, but Rep. Ryan refused to give those specifics because "it would take me too long," reports (video below).

Fox News host Chris Wallace repeatedly asked Rep. Paul Ryan how much Mitt Romney's tax plan would cost, but Rep. Ryan insisted: “It’s revenue neutral… Lower all Americans' tax rates by 20 percent.”

Wallace pressed Rep. Ryan for details, but he refused to do so. Finally, Wallace said: “But you haven’t given me the math."

Rep. Ryan said: “I don’t have the time. It would take me too long to go through all the math. But let me say it this way, you can lower tax rates by 20 percent across the board by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions, for home purchases, for health care. So what we’re saying is, people are going to get lower tax rates."
