“Change, As Long As You Pay For It!”
September 12, 2008
Ok, so that title is blatant thievery of this post by Paul Caron. Evidently, Joe Biden is a stingy sucker.
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.
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)”
“Yeah, that’s it. We’ll sit around and eat arugula, and let those poor saps foot the bill.” Works every time. Via Althose
