The guy is a tightwad with his own money, but he don’t mind spending yours and mine.
Charity?....A liberal’s compassion is limited only by the size of someone else’s wallet.
Libs are only charitable with OTHER people’s money, never their own
A couple cases of "A-Gaffe-A-Day" calendars to Goodwill?
In proportion to my own salary, I gave far less. Oh well.
If I made that kind of money, I’d be giving at least $5k to charities!!!
Just under $250K!
Joe pays AMT . Abysmally Marginal Tithe
And we know for sure they won't be raising taxes on those making less than $250,000.
BTW - Biden making $250K isn’t like you and me making $250K. It would be like us making $250K AND getting free room and board AND getting free travel AND having personal servants AND people lining up to give you gifts and pay your way wherever you go.
IOW like having $250K a year of walking around money after all your other expenses are already taken care of.
Just to put it in some kind of perspective.
How much do you think Ol’ Joe spends on, say, gasoline a year?
No surprise here. Christians whose politics track left think that lobbying Caesar to succor the poor discharges their obligation “the least of these”.
I gave twice that to my church!
The Obama’s made $5.5 million in 2009!!! “from the sale of his books”.
That’s a joke - wonder if they claimed Bill Ayers as a dependent or disclosed his very profligate gift of words - for a book that would not have otherwise been written!!!
Liberals are very generous with other people’s money. And they get REALLY angry when you point it out.
re: A liberals compassion is limited only by the size of someone elses wallet.
That should be made into a bumper sticker.
Worse, in previous years when our pre-President was simply a lawyer and professor making a mere mid-6 figure salary (before the Senate) and his wife had some sort of prestige job, IIRC their charitable contributions barely exceeded a couple of thousand! I think that this Executive Leadership Team (POTUS/VPOTUS) are the least charitable in living memory in times prior to political spotlights!
