Mitt Romney said on Thursday that he had not paid less than 13 percent of his income in taxes during the past decade, but he called the continued focus on his personal tax returns “small-minded” in the face of the nation’s problems. Speaking to reporters during a stop in South Carolina, Mr. Romney said that he had examined the last 10 years of his tax returns. “Every year, I’ve paid at least 13 percent,” he said, apparently referring to his effective federal income tax rate.
