"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his jihad concerning Mitt Romney's personal finances to the chamber floor Thursday, repeating his unsubstantiated claim that the wealthy Republican paid no federal income taxes for 10 years.

Questions about Romney's taxes clearly have the potential to hurt the GOP presidential candidate, with polls indicating that voters would like to see more expansive disclosure of his records.

Romney seems determined to tough out the issue, though. He has refused to release income tax returns from before 2010, and he recently dodged a question about whether the effective rate on his taxes had ever been below the 13.9% rate he paid in 2010...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Harry Reid lied and the young turds ran with it.
Tonight on CNN AC360, Anderson Copper opened his 'keeping them honest' segment with Sen. Harry Reid's recent tax allegation about Mitt Romney. Cooper had CNN Capitol Hill reporter, Dana Bash on to discuss the story, according to Bash, her source can confirm Sen. Reid's allegation. Bash went even further, she said this source also personally knows the Bain source who would have access to Romney's tax record.
Well well well Mitt don't just say Harry Reid is wrong, prove him wrong, release the Tax Returns. You know very well you will not release your Tax Returns for they prove that you paid little or no taxes at all in some years. Even with paying a lower percent than 99 percent of hard working Americans you want to give yourself another Tax Cut. Wonderful.
Any other conspiracy theories Adolf?

Fox news makes up stories all the time! Now its time for bit of a payback!!! 
I don't think it's important that Romney paid taxes, so long as he avoid paying legally. It's important that Romney thinks that His Class shouldn't pay taxes while the Other Classes do pay. It's an odd kind of thinking many rich people have. "We've created jobs and our employees pay taxes. Without me there would be no taxes so I shouldn't have to pay them." However our constitution says you have to pay income ... and at that time income was defined as profit, not as earned wages. hmm...
naw i just see a whole lot of it when they move there lips.
Did he really just compare it to the McCarthy hearings? What a joke. I guess he hasn't paid attention to the Obama administration and the attacks they've had to endure.
how ironic is it that fox news is making an argument about not presenting evidence
