According to the White House, "Together, [the Bidens] reported adjusted gross income of $379,035. The Bidens paid $87,900 in total federal tax for 2011. They paid $13,843 in Delaware income tax and $3,614 in Virginia income tax. The Bidens contributed $5,540 to charity in 2011."

In other words, the Bidens donated less than 1.5 percent of their adjusted gross income to charity.

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Owes Taxes Going Back To 2002
    A little over two weeks ago, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, the third-richest person in the world, penned an op-ed critical of the low tax rates for the superrich. It would seem his own company hasn't prioritized paying its rightful share in a timely fashion either.

    Berkshire Hathaway, the eighth-largest public company in the world according to Forbes, openly admits to still owing taxes for years 2002 through 2004 and 2005 through 2009, according to the New York Post. The company says it expects to "resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue Service" within the next year.

    i wonder if biden still could run and make contributions until april 17th, and deduct it from 2011 income?
    interestingly though, at least the bidens paid 23% federal income tax.
    romney admittedly only paid 15 % from over 20 million.

    AND ROMNEY GAVE 16% TO CHARITY...IF WE WOULD LOOK ROMNEYS MONEY COMES FROM CAPITAL GAINS, WHICH IS TAXED IN MANY WAYS, IF WE TAX IT AT A STANDARD WAY, THE "RICH" WILL JUST PUT THEIR MONEY ABROAD IN ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES, EVEN CHINA, THAT ALLOW EVEN HIGHER CAP GAINS DEDUCTIONS. ROMNEY IS PART OF THAT VIAL 1% THAT CONTRIBUTES IN ACTUAL DOLLARS 40% OF FEDERAL FUNDS. SO THE % TO ME IS NOT AS SIGNIFICANT. I WONDER WHAT THE DEMOCRATS WANT...1%=99%?????

    i would say that it would be reasonable to expect at least same percantage as regular middle class, as to the capital gains, i'm still on the fence,....
    i mean, the working poor barely have money left over to invest. don't the gop want to reduce capital gains taxes and inheritance tax to 0%?

    OH MORE THAN WERE LOST IN THE AFTER MATH OF 9/11...DON'T FORGET THE JOHN KENNEDY TAX CUT
    It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now … Cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus.”

    “The present tax codes … inhibit the mobility and formation of capital, add complexities and inequities which undermine the morale of the taxpayer, and make tax avoidance rather than market factors a prime consideration in too many economic decisions.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Jan. 23, 1963, special message to Congress on tax reduction and reform

    “In short, it is a paradoxical truth that … the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now. The experience of a number of European countries and Japan have borne this out. This country’s own experience with tax reduction in 1954 has borne this out. And the reason is that only full employment can balance the budget, and tax reduction can pave the way to that employment. The purpose of cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Nov. 20, 1962, news conference

    “The largest single barrier to full employment of our manpower and resources and to a higher rate of economic growth is the unrealistically heavy drag of federal income taxes on private purchasing power, initiative and incentive.”

    “Expansion and modernization of the nation’s productive plant is essential to accelerate economic growth and to improve the international competitive position of American industry … An early stimulus to business investment will promote recovery and increase employment.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Feb. 2, 1961, message on economic recovery

    “We must start now to provide additional stimulus to the modernization of American industrial plants … I shall propose to the Congress a new tax incentive for businesses to expand their normal investment in plant and equipment.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Feb. 13, 1961, National Industrial Conference Board

    “A bill will be presented to the Congress for action next year. It will include an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in both corporate and personal income taxes. It will include long-needed tax reform that logic and equity demand … The billions of dollars this bill will place in the hands of the consumer and our businessmen will have both immediate and permanent benefits to our economy. Every dollar released from taxation that is spent or invested will help create a new job and a new salary. And these new jobs and new salaries can create other jobs and other salaries and more customers and more growth for an expanding American economy.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Aug. 13, 1962, radio and television report on the state of the national economy

    “This administration pledged itself last summer to an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes … Next year’s tax bill should reduce personal as well as corporate income taxes, for those in the lower brackets, who are certain to spend their additional take-home pay, and for those in the middle and upper brackets, who can thereby be encouraged to undertake additional efforts and enabled to invest more capital … I am confident that the enactment of the right bill next year will in due course increase our gross national product by several times the amount of taxes actually cut.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Nov. 20, 1962, news conference

    I LOOKED IT OVER, AND I TRULY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS SHOWING...SOME COMMON SENSE...IF RICH PEOPLE DON'T HAVE MONEY THEY DON'T SPEND MONEY, THEY DON'T INVEST MONEY..AND THEY WILL FIND COUNTRIES WHERE THEY CAN INVEST AND NOT BE DEMONIZED AND BEAT UP OVER HAVING MONEY. THE TOP 10% PAY 70% OF TAXES, THE BOTTOM 50% PAY NOTHING...ZERO...WHAT DO YOU WANT THE TOP FOLKS TO PAY? DO YOU WANT A SOCIETY WHERE PEOPLE WAIT ON THEIR GOVERNMENT CHECK ? MUCH LIKE IN CALIFORNIA NOW , THE RICH JUST FIND WAYS TO GET THEIR MONEY OUT OF THERE?
    DO YOU REALLY THINK RICH PEOPLE WILL JUST SET AND TAKE IT?, DO NOTHING?, OR GO TO FRIENDLIER ENVIRONMENTS. CANADA HAS FIGURED IT OUT, SO MANY FOLKS WILL JUST HIRE MORE SMART GUYS TO MOVE MONEY ABROAD. STEVE WYNN HAS MOVED MUCH OF HIS CASINO EMPIRE TO CHINA...WHY???BECAUSE HE GETS BEAT TO DEATH HERE.
    THIS IS A POPULAR POLITICAL FOOTBALL, BUT THEY HAVE RUN OFF SO MANY INVESTORS AND REGULATED TO DEATH SMALL BUSINESS , AND SHOVED UNIONS DOWN STRUGGLING COMPANIES THAT THEN FAIL. LIBETY

    90%.
    ..and... too bad that biden does not have a running mate like romney,
    because mitt would have told him ; ' for pete's sake you're running for vice president, you better donate more....'....lol..... ;]
