I was amazed to recently learn that I give far more to charity than Joe Biden, while making far less.
I don't bring this up to toot my own horn, but to point out the dripping hypocrisy of a man who recently went on TV and said that it's time that rich Americans give their fair share to the lower class. Last week, Barack Obama told 'Joe the Plumber' that he simply wants to "spread the wealth." Start with yourselves, guys.
And, of course, John McCain and Sarah Palin don't care about the poor, they just gave 24 and 15 percent of their incomes to charity last year, respectively. Obama and Biden? Respectively, 6 and 0.3 percent.
This only underscores the true function of the Obama/Biden economic plan: Change You Can Believe In (as long as someone else pays for it).
