Romney gave 15% to Charity, Obama 1%, Biden $370



Democrats are never afraid to spend other peoples money, but they are stingy with their own money. There is a study done by a liberal finding if liberals were more charitable than conservatives. In amazement, the study showed conservative Republicans were more charitable than liberal Democrats. By the way, Democrat Vice-President Joe Biden gave $370 to charity in 2011.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle gave $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign.
The Obamas increased the amount they gave to charity when their income rose in 2005 and 2006 after the Illinois senator published a bestselling book. The $137,622 they gave over those two years amounted to more than 5 percent of their $2.6 million income.
