In just one more example of liberal hypocrisy, Joe Biden released his tax returns. (HT TaxProf)
Are you kidding me?
This guy has made on average $250,000 and his charitable donations average about $400 a year.
What did he do? Give some cans to a homeless guy.
Hey, at least when he knew he was running for president he stepped up and gave a whopping $995 (.32%) of his earnings.
I guess in Joe Biden's edition of the Bible that verse in Matthew so many democrats love to quote must have had the caveat "take care of the least of you, but only if it's with taxpayer money".
How this isn't on the front page of every newspaper is beyond me.
The quote from taxprof (which is powerful since his site is nonpolitical)
It is jarring that a couple earning over $200,000 per year would give as little as $2 per week to charity. This giving compares very unfavorably to John McCain, whose tax returns show that he gave 27.3% - 28.6% of his income to charity in 2006-2007. During the same period, the Obamas' tax returns show that they gave 5.8% - 6.1% of their income to charity.
Perhaps the Obama-Biden campaign needs a new slogan: "Change You Can Believe In (As Long As Someone Else Pays For It)"
