Obama and Biden’s 2009 Tax Returns

April 21st, 2010

Obama and Biden had some interesting things with their 2009 tax returns. A couple things, first their charitable contributions, second their mortgages.

Charitable Contributions

Obama made $5.5 million, mostly from book sales. Biden made $333,182. Of that, Obama gave $329,100 to charities and Biden gave $4,820. So Obama gave 5.9% and Biden a whopping 1.4%.

Obama’s isn’t too bad, over 300k is a pretty good chunk of change, but as a percentage it still isn’t that high. Biden on the other hand, is pretty pathetic.

For people who campaign on “helping people” you’d think they’d give a little more of their vast resources to actually help them. Apparently they’d prefer to take your money through taxes than give some of their own.

Mortgages

Obama paid $52,195 in home mortgage interest payments and Biden paid $30,349. This is pretty unbelievable to me. How in the world do you make over 5 million dollars in a year and still have a mortgage? What could possibly be the point? Maybe he needed to take out a HELOC on the White House to buy some votes for ObamaCare.

Apparently they haven’t read my article on how to payoff their mortgage early. It’s no wonder they can’t figure how to balance the federal budget.
