Over at the Weekly Standard, John McCormack draws our attention to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s official Senate website, which states that the Koch Brothers do not pay corporate taxes.
Harry Reid has a tax to grind. But it isn’t just the Koch Brothers. Let us not forget that during the 2012 campaign, Reid accused Mitt Romney of not having paid his taxes for 10 years. That whopper earned four Pinocchios from Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post. I have a feeling there are a few more Pinocchios in Reid’s future.
But what does Harry Reid care if he lies? He does so with the knowledge that some people will believe the lie. If Reid’s lie helped Romney lose to Obama then he has every incentive to lie about the Koch Brothers to keep his job as Senate Majority Leader.
