    Back to taxes.....

    Yes, they paid enough income taxes.

    Just as everyone else who is forced to pay income tax to the federal government. This nation wasn't founded on the principle of income taxes as the means to finance the federal government. So any monies paid in by individuals on their income is enough, from this standpoint.

    The amount donated to charity is what leapt out at me.

    Obama: 24.6% of income donated amongst 33 charities.

    Biden: 1.9% of income donated. Biden gave $2,400 from his income of $385,000 to his church (0.6%).

    From 2002 - 2005 Obama gave about 3.5% of his income to charity. 90% of the total contributions were given in 2005. Wonder why such an increse in 2005?

    Since Obama won the 2012 election, wonder what his 2013 contributions to all those charities will be?
