Don't know if anybody else has posted a topic like this but here it is: www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81529.html
Romney donated 29.4% of his income to charity, approximately $4 million.
Obama donated 21.8%, a little less than $800,000.
And Joe Biden donated a pitiful 1.5%, only $5,500. Even more shocking is that in the 10 before Biden ran for VP, he only donated $370 a year. I know plenty of common people who donate more than that.
Obviously Romney has more money to donate, so the amount he donates will be greater, but the percentage he donates is also greater than Biden and Obama combined.
And also shocking is that Romney left $1.8 million in donations off his return so he would pay higher than a 13% rate on his income. He could have had more money in his pocket, but he wasn't interested in that.
Look at and analyze the stats however you want. But the bottom line is Romney is not the greedy, selfish guy he is made out to be. If you want to point that finger at someone, point it at Biden. I mean seriously, 1.5%?
I don't doubt Obama is a fairly generous guy. But looking at the numbers, Romney is more generous.
Just putting it out there, many people don't realize this about Romney. Thoughts?
