Josh Romney Finally Comes Up With Sassy Retort for Harry Reid

As you may recall, in July 2012 Harry Reid make a bold declaration that some guy told him Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years. Later it emerged that Romney never paid less than 13.66 percent, and Double Down outed Jon Huntsman Sr., the billionaire father of Romney’s rival, as Reid’s source (though Huntsman denies it). It seemed like Romney was pretty thoroughly vindicated, but apparently his son wasn’t done with the Senate majority leader. On Tuesday evening, Josh Romney tweeted this photo along with the caption, “Hey @SenatorReid here’s a shot of @MittRomney paying taxes. Does it every year. It’s how you get your paycheck.” It’s a sick burn (well, for a Romney) but it does raise some questions. Why doesn’t Romney e-file? Did he wait until April 15 to mail his tax forms? Can’t he pay someone to go to the post office for him? Check back in 2016 for Josh’s explanation.
