Mitt Romney: 'I have paid taxes every year, and a lot of taxes'

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 1:09 PM

Talking Points Memo has the latest on the Mitt Romney tax watch.

Romney says he has, too, paid taxes, without offering specifics. But he nonetheless turns the tables on Sen. Harry Reid, who claimed insider knowledge that Romney hadn't paid federal taxes for 10 years despite enormous wealth. Too bad that Reid went overboard, unprepared to offer proof. Because it allows Romney a diversion to dodge the questions about what types of taxes he paid, what amount and to what governments.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
