About those Values Mr. Vice President

This truly cannot be said enough so I decided to cover this information again.  Last month Vice President Biden made the following comment:
“And, by the way, I’ve been saying this for 30 years. And I’m glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tells you, say, ‘Look, let me tell you what’s important to me, what I value.’ My dad would go, ‘No, no. Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value.’”
So lets take a look at The Vice President values charity:
                    Gross Income              Charity
1998             $215,432                      $195
1999             $210,797                      $120
2000             $219,953                      $360
2001             $220,712                      $360
2002             $227,811                      $260
2003             $231,375                      $260
2004             $234,271                      $380
2005             $321,379                      $380
2006             $248,459                      $380
2007             $319,853                      $995
2008             $269,256                      $1885
2009             $333,182                      $4820
2010             $379,178                      $5350
2011             $379,035                      $5540
Total             $3,810,693                   $21,285  
For a grand total of .005%

The average for the Romney family is 13.45%. 

So what is that value Mr. Vice President?  It certainly isn't charitable giving.  

The Obama's were very stingy with charitable giving as well, that is until he decided to run for public office on the federal level.  They could afford a $2 million home, but not too much for charity.  I hope that his charitable giving stays at current levels or increases once he leaves the presidency, as he will be making millions and millions per year once he does.
