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