Jon Stewart Is Right: Harry Reid Is A Really, Really Terrible Person
As if doubling down on his unsupported allegations against Mitt Romney weren’t bad enough, Harry Reid has taken to repeating those allegations on the floor of the United States Senate:
He’s refused to release his tax returns, as we know. If a person coming before this body wanted to be a cabinet officer, he couldn’t be if he did the same refusal Mitt Romney does about tax returns. So the word’s out that he hasn’t paid any taxes for ten years. Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t. We already know from one partial tax return that he gave us, he has money hidden in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, and a Swiss bank account. Not making that up, that’s in the partial year that he gave us. Mitt Romney makes more money in a single day than the average middle-class family makes in two years-or more.
I’m not a Romney fan, I think he should release his tax returns, and yes I know that Republicans have done stuff like this before, but that doesn’t make what Reid is doing here any less despicable.
