I want to start out by saying that our President gave 14.2% of his income to charity- a respectable amount, although not exemplary for someone of his income level...still far better than many other leading liberal politicians. What did strike me is Joe Biden's tax info. He and his wife earned $379,178 in 2010 and gave a whopping $5,630 to charity. If my calculations are correct, that is a pitiful 1.4% of his income. Does this offend anyone here? This man is the second-in-command of an administration that continually chastises "greed" and has promoted a argument that many services are a right (healthcare, education, etc.), yet Biden certainly does not put his personal money where his mouth is. Unfortunately, as the NYT showed a number of years ago- liberal politicians and citizens give (on average) considerably less of their income to charity than do social conservatives. Is this simply another manifestation of the proverbial economic example of "wanting my lake cleaned-up, but at someone else's expense?"
