Whoever said our elected leaders are just like you and me...

... clearly didn't know what they were talking about.

This from the wire:
President Bush and the first lady paid about $187,000 in federal taxes this year on income of about $735,000. Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife made more than 10 times as much, overpaid the tax man and are looking for a $1.9 million refund.
Let's see... I just completed my tax return... I made about 10% of the President's income... which means 1% of the VP's.

When was the last time these guys had to raid the change can in order to get a loaf of bread or a soda?

  1. Those are some impressive numbers all right. The article goes on to say that the Cheney's made $8.82 million dollars of which they dontated $6.87 million to charity. That's 77% of their income donated. Tithing's only 10%.
