“I am not basing (the claim Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes) on some figment of my imagination. I have had a number of people tell me that. I don’t think the burden should be on me. The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes.”

Harry Reid owes Mitt Romney an apology. The Romney campaign on Friday released details of the Republican nominee’s 2011 federal tax return, along with a signed letter from his tax advisers attesting to the fact that Romney paid taxes from 1990 to 2009. Their statement flatly contradicts Senate Majority Leader Reid’s unfounded and baseless assertions, made repeatedly over the last several months, that Romney paid no taxes at all for 10 years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had to backpedal and apologize very quickly for a private conversation he had with Barack Obama during Obama's presidential campaign.

“The Founders created a system of checks and balances — three branches of government, for example, and two chambers of the Congress — precisely because they anticipated these passions,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Long after that system was created, a new independent federal agency was created in the same spirit of checks and balances,” said Reid. “That agency is the National Labor Relations Board, and it acts as a check on employers and employees alike.”
In April of 2007, democrat US senator Harry Reid said, "I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and, you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows, this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday."

In the middle of his tirade against House Republicans' "mean-spirited" budget bill on the Senate floor Tuesday, the Senate Majority Leader lamented that the GOP’s proposed budget cuts would eliminate the annual "cowboy poetry festival” in his home state of Nevada.
“H.R. 1 is a mean-spirited bill that would cut the heart out of the recovery that we have in America today,” said Reid. “It goes after little children, poor little boys and girls ... we want them to learn to read.”
