Senate minority leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, asks for another tax hike this morning:

"Democrats believe we should replace this harsh austerity with a balanced approach that targets wasteful spending and tax loopholes," said Harry Reid, "and ask the wealthiest among us to contribute a little more to reduce the deficit."

Reid asking for more taxes comes about a month after getting $617 billion in tax increases in the fiscal cliff deal.
