Romney Won’t Prove Claim That He Hasn’t Paid Taxes for 10 Years
Here is where it gets funny. Romney is denying the Reid allegation that Romney didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years and he is asking for Reid to prove his charge. Couldn’t Romney disprove it by, I don’t know, say, releasing his own tax records? It’s not a court of law or legal matter, so the burden of proof is not with Reid on this.
So I am guessing Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years.
Mitt Romney says it’s time for Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid to put up or shut up when it comes to talking about the Republican presidential candidate’s taxes.
Reid has been saying this week that an investor with Romney’s former company, Bain Capital, claimed that Romney didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years. Reid says that’s why Romney isn’t releasing more than a year or two of his tax returns.
Reid isn’t saying just who makes that claim — and the Nevada Democrat adds that he isn’t certain that it’s true.
On Thursday, Romney told radio host Sean Hannity that Reid needs to, in Romney’s words, “put up or shut up.” He called the claim about his taxes “untrue, dishonest, and inaccurate.”
