Responding to the fascination with his tax returns, Mitt Romney said he has paid at least 13% in taxes every year for the past 10 years. “I did go back and look at my taxes and over the past 10 years I never paid less than 13%,” Romney said. President Obama’s campaign has released ads claiming—without proof—that Romney has paid no taxes some years. The ads fail to note Romney is able to keep his tax rate low because most of his income comes from investments, and instead question Romney’s truthfulness.
