Harry Reid ties Romney comment to tax attack ('He could be 1 of those who paid no fed income taxes')

Source: Washington Post

Romney, he said, “only wants to be president of half the United States of America” — a response to Romney’s remark that 47 percent of Americans are “victims” who cannot be shaken from their dependence on government.

Reid said that Romney was disparaging toward — and hoping to raise taxes on — the elderly, the disabled, young students and members of the military.

“The 47 percent are ordinary, hard-working Americans who deserve respect – especially from a man who wants to be their president,” Reid said. “They’re not avoiding their tax bills using Cayman Island tax shelters or Swiss bank accounts, like Mitt Romney.”

Reid went on to suggested that Romney is not paying any such taxes. “For all we know, Mitt Romney could be one of those who have paid no federal income taxes,” he said.

1. Must compare to previous statements. For a naturally cautious person, he's sounding MORE certain. &

I don't think Senator Reid leaves very much to chance.

2. I'd bet a sack of doughnuts that Willard (R) is indeed a Tax Dodger

Tax Dodgery is another core Republican Family Value, right up there with there impeccable record of Republican Chickenhawkery.

3. "Reid went on to suggested that Romney is not paying any such taxes."

Come on, editors, open your eyes! The Internet is no excuse for typos and bad grammar!

6. I guess Mitt thinks some major corporations are deadbeats too

Seventy-eight of the 280 companies surveyed paid zero or less in federal income taxes in at least one year from 2008 to 2010

Them damn, worthless, freeloading corporations.

7. I think we have a right to see those tax returns now!

He shamed Americans for not paying taxes. I would like to be able to shame him. What is he hiding?

Don't let them ignore Mitt's refusal to release his taxes.
