DescriptionAs more questions swirl around Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and how much he has paid in taxes over the past decade, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes he has the answer: none.

Reid went on the floor of the Senate today and repeated his allegations that Romney paid no federal income taxes for more than 10 years. Reid said he got the information from an investor at Bain Capital, the firm Romney ran until about 1999.

Romney has refused to release his taxes before 2010, remaining steadfast even in the midst of a firestorm of criticism and questions from both Democrats and Republicans. The longer the candidate goes without giving them up, the more damaging observers think they must be.
