Romney Gave More to Charity in a Year Than Biden Gave in a Decade

Monday, 24 Sep 2012 11:35 AM

When it comes to charitable giving, Mitt Romney is leaving Vice President Joe Biden in the dust, the Weekly Standard reported.

Romney’s 2011 tax returns show he gave more than $4 million to charity last year (about 30 percent of his income) to Biden’s $3,690 (0.2 percent of his income) over the previous ten years when he first ran for vice president, according to the Weekly Standard.

All told, Romney gave a thousand times as much to charity in one year as Biden gave in a decade, according to the Standard. Romney’s charitable giving averaged more than $10,000 a day last year.

The Bidens earned over $2 million over the decade in which they gave $3,690. Their income was $320,000 in 2008.
