Why does he have to give to charity?
He doesnt. Guess after as long as he's been in the game of "public service" it's no longer necessary to give the impression of caring about the community.
Does he make more than just the VP salary? Cause that amount is a little over 3% of the VP salary.
Lots of people I know work for the government. Is it a responsibility of theirs to give the money back?
He and his wife filed jointly.
Are your friends in a direc position to influence policy that dictates the spending of tax payers dollars? Did they just help run a campaign that centered on painting the opposition as greedy and heartless?
Credit where credits due: Barry o dished out roughly 25%
It's always someone else, isn't it?
Yes to percentage, yes to amount.
That's up a lot. The year before he became VP it was a few hundred bucks.
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife gave an average of $369 a year to charity during the past decade, his tax records show.

He's a hypocrite of the highest order, nothing to see here.
I love how I get downvotes for being charitable. Somebody is maaaad.
Just finished my taxes.
Charitable gifts were 31% of my gross.
About normal for me.
I would never judge anyone that way. It's a personal decision.
Says here he made $17k renting out a guest cottage on his property to secret service when he goes back home.
Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, took in $26,400 in 2012 by renting a cottage on the property of their Delaware home to the Secret Service, tax records released by the White House revealed.
They netted $17,944 of that rental money.

Because he is the VP of the greatest country in the world. Like it or not he supposed to serve his community not profit from it. All of these politicians no matter R or D have forgotten that.

The same way Cheney did. You say you are schooled on this sort of thing and you do not know the companies that are making money with this administration?
Says the guy who doesn't know what a chicken fried steak is.
You can't be this dumb
He can and is.
I'm just going to leave this here.
From the blog The Ticket: President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $112,214 in federal income taxes on adjusted gross income of $608,611 in 2012—for an effective rate of 18.4 percent. They also contributed $150,034 to 33 charities, or 24.6 percent. And they paid $29,450 in Illinois income tax. The White House released the first couple's tax returns [...]
He was just saying that Biden is on the take the same way Cheney and every other clown in Washington is/was.
You should really try to pick and choose when you're going to blindly follow your party.
So Cheney can't have a relationship with big oil, but it's ok for obama to continue courting Wall Street and employing architects of the collapse?
Gotcha - I'm not arguing that Cheney is right and biden is wrong. They're both wrong.
I'm saying its awfully hypocritical for someone to be so supportive of increasing the domestic spending of public dollars while holding tight to his own money. It a clear tell that when push comes to shove, he doesn't believe in anything but his own well being. Actions>words
partisan politics is for the birds and if you think the democrats are any more capable of saving this country than the republicans than you're a hack and much more naive and ignorant than you'd ever know.
I know. Don't sweat it, you'll learn.
Read a book
Anyone who's studied the U.S. tax code in any meaningful way knows that the vast majority of charitable giving from high-income taxpayers is primarily for the positive tax effects the giving generates. One of the main points of the tax code is to incentivize charitable donations through positive tax consequences, so as to avoid the concept of "redistribution" by taxing those taxpayers directly and then funding charities with that money.
OP is silly.
This has to be the most popular "insult" on tBB. It comes up at least 25 times in every similar thread.
