Tuesday Night at the DNC – Harry Reid
September 4, 2012 Leave a comment
I love hard-hittin’ Harry, but is it just my ears, or does Harry Reid actually say “Caylyn Islands” instead of Cayman? Is there some new set of tax-dodging islands used by Mitt Romney that are so obscure that I’ve never heard of them?
REID: Today’s Republicans party believes in two sets of rules — one for millionaires and billionaires, and another for the middle class. And this year they’ve nominated the strongest proponent and clearest beneficiary of this rigged game — Mitt Romney. Never in modern American history has a presidential candidate tried so hard to hide himself from the people he hopes to serve. When you look at the one tax return he has released, it’s obvious why. It’s obvious why there’s only been one. We learned that he pays a lower tax rate than middle class families. We learned that he chose Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island tax shelters over American institutions. And we can only imagine what new secrets would be revealed if he showed the American people a dozen years of tax returns, like his father did.
So, care to rebut this, Mr. Romney? Is this not what we learned?
