Mitt Romney Attacks ‘Small Minded’ People Asking For His Tax Returns
After complaining that Vice President Joe Biden was “hateful,” Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney attacked people (including republicans) who wanted to see his returns, calling them “small minded.”
During a press conference at the airport in Greer, South Carolina, the GOP hopeful told reporters that he couldn’t understand why people keep asking about his taxes.
“I just have to say, given the challenges that America faces — 23 million people out of work, Iran about to become nuclear, one out of six Americans in poverty — the fascination with taxes I paid I find to be very small minded compared to the broad issues that we face,” Romney explained.
“But I did go back and look at my taxes and over the past 10 years, I never paid less than 13 percent,” he continued. “I think the most recent year is 13.6 or something like that. So, I pay taxes every single year.”
