Tax Returns Show Which Candidate Really Cares

Letter to the Editor:
All of the talk about what percentage rate Mitt Romney pays in federal income taxes is a smoke screen.

Look at the number that truly tells you something about who really cares about the poor and less fortunate among us. That number is charitable contributions. Mitt Romney and his wife donated more than $4,000,000 (30% of their income) to charities in 2011.

President Obama and his wife donated $47,564 (5% of their income) to charities in 2011 and Joe Biden and his wife donated just $5,540 (1.4% of their income). These numbers reflect the true character of the candidates.
