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.
