Charitable Giving and the Compassionate Democrat

Aron linked to [ this post ] and I wanted to speak to this issue as well because it bugs the heck out of me. It talks about charitable giving and exposes some pretty interesting facts about the Democrats running in this election. To summarize, Joe Biden gave only $995 to charity last year, though he brought home $320,000. Over the last 10 years, he’s brought home $2.4 million dollars, yet only has only given $3600 to charity.

Now I’m not going to boast about how much my wife and I give to charity, because that’s not what this post is about. But I will say that we, and a lot of other regular folks I know, have given more in the past few months than Biden has given in the last 10 years. Obama didn’t do much better until he started on the campaign trail and even now I wouldn’t classify him as an extremely generous guy, especially for all his talk about helping the disadvantaged.

So my question is this… where is this compassion that Democrats always speak of?

It seems to me the only time the Democratic party is compassionate, it’s with MY tax money. What do you think?
