Baby, baby Paul Ryan is out of time

Have to give Chris Wallace some credit here for trying to pin down Paul Ryan on the math of his secret, very serious, tax plan. But the Exalted Grand Wizard of Wonkiness can't be bothered with the details:
RYAN: It’s revenue neutral. [...]

WALLACE: But I have to point out, you haven’t given me the math.

RYAN: No, but you…well, I don’t have the time. It would take me too long to go through all of 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.
And he's never going to have time to explain the numbers. You just wouldn't understand. Math is for wonks, not "you people." Just take his word for it.
