Biden's Tax Returns Show Little Charitable Giving
Paul Caron wonders if the release of Sen. Joe Biden's tax returns "might backfire because the returns show that the Bidens have been amazingly tight-fisted when it comes to their charitable giving. Despite income ranging from $210,432 - $321,379 over the ten-year period, the Bidens have given only $120 - $995 per year to charity, which amounts to 0.06% - 0.31% of their income."
"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."
Independent Sector reports that 89% of American households contribute to charity, with an average contribution of $1,620 -- 3.1% of income.

Not surprising as these elitist Yankee liberals with above average income gives the least in charitable giving in comparison to other parts of the country. Obama/Biden, your cheapscape candidates.

Lefties Tax returns almost NEVER show any kind of charitable giving. And when you do get a leftie to give to a chairty - it's usually to some art or animal "charity." As much as they preach we need to be our brothers keeper - they never practice it themselves. Well never with their OWN money.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

check out Obama's tax returns. Notice he didn't gve squat until he started running for president - and even then he's only given 6% of his income.
meanwhile - McCain's family RUNS several charities - his wife is a dedicated philanthropist - They put their money where their mouth is.
