Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” challenged California Republican Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina to say how she’d pay for tax cuts she touts and help close the budget deficit. Fiorina responded by accusing Wallace of “asking a typical political question.” (h/t Mediaite)

WALLACE: So Ms. Fiorina let me ask you a specific question, because I still haven’t gotten many specifics from you….as a non-career politician, as the anti-Barbara Boxer, you tell me specifically what are you going to do to cut the billions, the trillions, of dollars in entitlements?”

FIORINA: See, Chris, I have to — you know, Chris, I have to say, with all due respect, you’re asking a typical political question.


WALLACE: It may a typical political question, Ms. Fiorina, but that’s where the money is. The money is in Medicare. The money is in Social Security. We’ve got the baby boomers coming. There is going to be a huge explosion of entitlement spending, and you call it a political question when I ask you to name one single entitlement expenditure you’re willing to cut.

Wallace continued to press Fiorina and got nothing more than boilerplate, blame the media, blame government spending-type answers.
