Harry Reid Doubles Down On Romney Taxes

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has doubled (actually tripled) down on his claim that Mitt Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years.

In both a Senate floor speech and in conversation with Nevada reporters, Reid said he had it on good authority that the former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate had paid no taxes, a claim he attributed in a Huffington Post interview to a Bain investor.

“I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination,” Reid told Nevada reporters Wednesday. “I have had a number of people tell me that.” But he would not expand on his sources. “I don’t think the burden should be on me,” he said. “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes.”

And on the Senate floor Thursday, Reid said, “The word is out he hasn’t paid taxes for 10 years.”

  • Unbelievable.   “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes.”  Is it too hard for us to elect someone who wouldn’t get kicked off a HS debate team?
