The tax forms of the President and Vice President were made public today. I find it very revealing.
The Obama's made $5.5 million last year (mostly due to book sales) and gave $329,000 to charities. So, they gave 5.9 % of their income to charity.
The Biden's made $333,000 last year (which is hard to believe) and gave a paltry $4,820 to charities. So, they gave 1.44% of their income to charity.
A few observations:
1. Neither family is very generous.
2. If people think the Obama's are generous for giving 5.9% of their income to charity, it reveals how pathetic our view of generosity has become.
3. It is amazing how generous these two are with taxpayer's money but not with their own.
