Questions for Paul Ryan—and the White House

Ezra Klein, one of the most knowledgeable journalists about the health care debate, and about the budget, has a list of questions he'd like to ask Paul Ryan about health care. But Paul Ryan won't talk to him, and Ryan has never answered them from anybody else either. Again, why are politicians able to get away with this? Why don't the press and the Democratic party ridicule and shame them for ducking straightforward questions?

Klein also pointedly asks the White House to answer why their budget fails to invest in the country, though Obama says that's a priority, and why he won't raise taxes back to what they were in the Clinton era.

I'd like some answers, but I'm not holding my breath.
