Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he has “no problem” with the Obama campaign’s attacks on GOP challenger Mitt Romney’s time as the CEO of Bain Capital.

“I believe that Governor Romney, who holds himself up to be this great businessman, should have to – should have his record looked at. I have no problem with this,” he said on Capitol Hill Tuesday. (RELATED: Obama stands by hits on Romney’s Bain Capital days)

When asked about the campaign’s strategy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters, “the whole notion of earned success and of capitalism seems to be under attack by this administration across the board, not just in the campaign, but through the actions of the government itself.”

He added, “They seem to have forgotten what made this country great and what has lifted literally millions of Americans out of poverty for a long period of time.”

McConnell then criticized the Obama administration’s economic policies.

“This is certainly the most anti-business administration since the Carter years and at least you could say this for President Carter, he was largely incompetent,” McConnell said. “This administration has actually done a lot of damage to the country. We hope we can begin to clean up the mess and repair the damage after the election.”
