Americans are astonishingly generous when it comes to charitable contributions. So, how do the presidential candidates stack up?Well, thanks to their having released their tax returns, we have a pretty good idea. In the years 2000 through 2007, Barack Obama donated between 0.4% and 6.1% of his net income to charitable causes. McCain released his 2006 and 2007 tax returns, and in those years he gave 28.6% and 27.3% of his income to charitable causes. So it seems to me that Obama's saying that America should be more like John McCain, and less like Barack Obama. http://wizbangblog.com/content/2008/08/21/obama-still-telling-americans-be-like-republicans.php I always said. If you want to look into a man's heart, look at his tax return.
