obama's made 5.5 million last year

and for what,2 books?

WASHINGTON (April 15) -- President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, made $5.5 million last year, largely on sales of his books, and paid nearly $1.8 million in federal income tax, according to the tax return they released Thursday.

The Obamas gave $329,000 to charities in 2009, including $50,000 each to CARE and the United Negro College Fund. The president also donated his $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize award to 10 charities.

The vast majority of the Obamas' earnings continue to come from sales of the president's books, "Dreams From My Father," and "The Audacity of Hope," which have netted the couple several million dollars in recent years.

The Obamas paid $163,303 in Illinois income taxes.

In 2008, when Obama was campaigning for president, he and his wife earned $2.7 million and paid $855,323 in federal income tax.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, reported an adjusted gross income of $333,182 for 2009. They paid $71,147 in federal income taxes, $12,420 in Delaware income taxes and $1,477 in Virginia income taxes.

The Bidens gave $4,820 to charity, in cash and in-kind donation

Hell no, you get your own mansion courtesy of the Rothschild family, a private bunker, and a money printing press with unlimited paper.

He's the most powerful public figure in the world and his ventures in capitalism netted him less than 3.5 mil? He also gave away over 1.7 million??? He sucks at being wealthy.

Why does he need his own money?

He gets it all, free of charge. It's like playing Monopoly with other people's cash, cars, houses, and properties.

$1.4 Million of that $1.7 is from that Nobel Prize that he didn't do anything for. So he gave away $300,000 of $3.5million..

I'm kinda surprised at Biden's taxes. He only gave $4820 to charity? I gave more than that to charity and I don't even make a third of what they do.. I guess they're the kind of liberals that think its only right to give other peoples money away...

In '07 they gave something like $350 to charity, if I'm not mistaken.

It doesn't bother me that he made some money. It DOES bother me that he's a lying commie cock-sucker.

If you look at Obama's itemized deductions, he only have $450 of that $300,000 to churches.

I have a hard time believing the books only made him 3.5m... Anyway to find out how many copies have sold. A million books at only $3.5 a book( profit to Obama after cost, publishing fees etc) would give him that number. Surely he made more per book and maybe sold more then a million books. Every negro has one.

What is annual salary for POTUS?

I really don't have a problem with that. Is he even a member of a church any longer?

IMO, charitable giving is charitable giving. Obviously he isn't giving on the level of someone like GW but giving about 9.4% of his income when you exclude that Nobel prize money.

But even then, it's his money to do with as he pleases. I just wish he would do it with only his money and not ours. I really have a problem with Biden because that shithead wants to give all of OUR money away but barely gives any of his own. What a fuckin' asshole.

From what I read the 1.4 mill from the peace prize went straight to charaties so it isnt calculated in his taxes at all.

The president earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 non-taxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment. The most recent raise in salary was approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton in 1999 and went into effect in 2001.
