Can't be true. This is a Republican area and they support Mitt. They only exist for tax breaks. Just listen to the news and the commercials.

Good gawd, ya' old fool! "Charitable" donations are a longstanding and valued component of any tax avoidance strategy. And donations to one's church are the most commonly pursued of these- a la Mssr. Willy- and over which little or no oversight of the actual application of those funds is required.

And the reason the wealthy donate the most, is the same reason why they should be taxed the most: that's where the money is, numnutz!

The wealthy are taxed the most. They pay the highest dollars. You, sir, are hung up on the Progressive/Democrat talking points as to the percentage. You cannot spend a percentage. You can only spend dollars. If you're going to talk taxes, talk in dollars, not percentages. Percentages are a way of lying about the facts.

More bullish*t, old man! And that's judging only from the one tax return and an "estimate" Willard will release! And talking dollars, not percentages, is how you make the paltry taxes Willard pays appear to be fair when they clearly aren't! Unfortunately for you and Willy, the American people just ain't buying your bullish*t, old fool!

The days of the angry old white guys' party are fading fast; ain't God great!
