“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

Last week, Fox News carried a report about the charitable donations made by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2021.

It was revealed that Joe and Jill Biden reported $610,702 in income for 2021, and paid $183,925 in federal and state income taxes. They donated $17,394 to charity — i.e., roughly 2.8%.

Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff earned $1,655,563 in 2021 and paid $523,371 in federal income taxes. They donated $22,100 to charity i.e., roughly 1.3%.

According to 2016 data from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, American families making between $500,000 and $2 million donate around 3.1% of their earnings.

Hence, the Bidens paid 0.3% less than the average charitable deduction; for the Harrises, it was a significant 1.8% less than the average charitable deduction for Americans.

How much an individual donates to charity is strictly their personal affair. The spending habits of individuals, even public figures, should be no concern of any third party, unless the pursuits are illegal. In a free society, people must be allowed to spend as they desire. They can splash all their money on the luxuries of life or donate copiously to charity.

The sole reason that the scant charitable donations from the Bidens and Harrises deserve scrutiny is to verify if they follow the principles they relentlessly advocate.

Both Harris and Biden have complained that the rich do not pay their fair share.

The Biden administration claimed that lessening the disparity in income between the wealthiest and the rest of the populace has been among its top priorities. They prescribed two solutions: The first was to heavily tax the wealthiest within the U.S. The second was to provide welfare payments to regular people via their $1.9 trillion relief package.

Do they not realize that if the rich are taxed heavily, they will have no incentive to invest in U.S. companies? They will merely transfer their businesses and finances to business-friendly countries. The result is higher unemployment within the U.S. This has been happening for ages with manufacturing jobs being shipped abroad.

Providing welfare benefits to the needy is worthy, e.g., a single mother who is in poor health deserves government support to feed her family. However, if the government pays able-bodied people just because they are from a specific income bracket, there is no incentive to work. The workforce is reduced and businesses, especially small businesses, struggle.

The only way to reduce income inequality is to remove gratuitous regulations and reduce taxes. This causes investors to have more money to invest in businesses, resulting in job creation. It causes consumers to have more money to spend. This is exactly what President Trump did and he caused enrichment and empowerment of groups from all demographics. It even enriched the government i.e. the pro…
