Vice President Biden made six times more money than I did last year; actually, if we're comparing AGI, he and his wife made about eight times more money that my wife and I did. Yet, we gave two and a half times more to charity than did the Bidens. When Joe tells the country it's time to pony up and help people out, he means with somebody else's money, not his.

Why am I not surprised.
