This is why politicians don’t like to release their tax returns!

Bloomberg News crunches the numbers on Sen. Barack and Michelle Obama’s newly-released tax returns and finds:

"The Obamas’ donations to all recipients totaled $2,350 in 2000, $1,470 in 2001, $1,050 in 2002, $3,400 in 2003, and $2,500 in 2004. They also paid federal taxes totaling $311,044 during the same period on their $1.2 million of income."
