Speaking with reporters in Nevada today, Mitt Romney fired back against ads run by the Obama campaign suggesting that he would raise taxes.

Romney was referring to the Supreme Court ruling on the Obamacare mandate, which Chief Justice John Roberts explained was constitutional because it was actually a tax.
