On the Senate floor just, Senate majority leader Harry Reid tripled down and again accused Mitt Romney of not paying income taxes:

"If you’re a multimillionaire, Mitt Romney won’t rest until you get a quarter million dollar tax cut. That’s what the Ryan budget does. And Romney likes that. For all we know, Mitt Romney could be one of those who have paid no federal income tax. Thousands of families make more than $1 million, pay nothing in federal income taxes each year. Repeat that Madame President, thousands of families making more than a million dollars a year pay nothing in federal income taxes. Is Mitt Romney among those? We’ll never know since he refuses to release his tax returns for the years before he was running for president," said Reid.
