Romney says he paid at least 13% in taxes the past 10 years

Mitt Romney said Thursday that his effective federal tax rate was at least 13 percent in each of the last 10 years, but he declined again to release the tax returns that would confirm his claim.

Romney’s statement during a press conference in Greer, S.C. honored a pledge he made in an interview with ABC News last month, when he said he would be “happy to go back and look” at his tax rate over the last decade, after he was accused by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of paying no taxes at all over that period.
