Harry Reid
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid yesterday asserted on the Senate floor that Mitt Romney paid no taxes at all for years:
His father, George Romney, set the precedent that people running for president would file their tax returns, let everybody look at them. But Mitt Romney can’t do that because he’s basically paid no taxes in the prior 12 years.
Maybe Harry Reid knows something we don't. Maybe he's shooting from the hip without knowing all the facts.

With questions swirling around Romney's overseas investments in tax havens, secretive foriegn corporations and Swiss bank accounts, we don't know what's going on. Republican Joe Scarborough and Democrat Howard Dean speculated on Morning Joe this morning that there may be years where Romney paid no taxes at all.

I do know what will clear the matter up:

Full disclosure of Mitt Romney's tax returns and business documents.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
