President Obama and Vice President Biden’s 2013 Tax Returns

 

 

Today, the President released his 2013 federal income tax returns. He and the First Lady filed their income tax returns jointly and reported adjusted gross income of $481,098. The Obamas paid $98,169 in total tax.

 

The President and First Lady also reported donating $59,251 – or about 12.3 percent of their adjusted gross income – to 32 different charities. The largest reported gift to charity was $8,751 to the Fisher House Foundation. The President’s effective federal income tax rate is 20.4 percent. The President pushed for and signed into law legislation that makes the system more fair and helps the middle class by extending tax cuts to middle class and working families and asks the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share. In 2013, as a result of his policies, the President was subject to limitations in tax preferences, as well as additional Medicare and investment income taxes, for high income earners. The President and First Lady also released their Illinois income tax return and reported paying $23,328 in state income tax.

I retired in 2008 and wondered would I have a satisfying life to live. I discovered blogging in 2011 and I have found my second niche in life. I love what I do and I am good at it…thats a blessing. Thank you for all your kind words and your great support.

      • I will share this with you for therapeutic purposes… About 2 years ago WordPress (WP) gave us bloggers the option to reblog other bloggers who use WP. So when I come across a blog/blogger that has posted useful information, I reblog, because that’s why I blog in the first place, to share useful, and sometimes not so useful, information. Main purpose being to combat & defeat the lies & misinformation of the Reich wing Tea Party RepubliCANT assholes. Some female blogger hated me reblogging her content, and approached me in a very incorrect way to stop reblogging her post.

        Well me being me, after several comment exchanges here on my blog, I ended up telling her to go suck a dick. After all, I have to be me. Since that time, 2 years ago, this female has lied on me, starting a twitter campaign to have me removed from WP and twitter, as if she has that power. Says to all who listen that I’m stalker her, threatened to rape her, am an advocate of raping women, steal her blog content and tweets, and I am in love with her and that I attack other female bloggers.

        Some of the lies she spreads are comical and some very nasty slanderous….but all make me understand I am something/somebody she strives to be, and just can’t quite achieve it yet. OK I feel better now, just needed to type that out loud to someone.

      • Well, she is really left of center! I realize you have a temper and language gets blue sometimes. I do not believe those accusations. I have never been afraid of you even after our only argument. The reason you reblog is the same reason I do. To help bloggers get their thoughts out there. And to get people information and hope they will think. There are things I know about and blog about and those I don’t. You are in love with her. Since you have never met her that seems illogical. Try to stay away from her circle. No one has ever said a bad thing to me about you. You are a good man. You are my friend.

Just so you know, the blog is The Obama Diary and the woman is Chipsticks, too chickenshit to use her real name. Bottom line id nobody ever controls what I do, what I say or who I am, but me. Yes, you and I are friends.

      • I didn’t mean to make you feel bad by saying you had a temper. But I will always be real and authentic. I can have a temper myself. Especially with an abuser or someone who abuses kids. Abuse from my childhood left me intolerant of people who abuse. I have to always check myself because I must live true to my beliefs. I think I was on her site last week and reblogged. I’ve not heard anything. No one should ever control anyone else. Not you. Not anyone. We are all equal. Are you feeling better?

      • Yeah, it is from the fall. The right side of my head hit the Bombay Chest and I got the concussion. The CT they did in the er showed a large hematoma on the side of the skull. That would be blood. I woke up this morning and the right side of my face was swollen, my right eye was almost swollen shut and it is all bruised. It can take a day or so for all of the bruising to come out. So my eye looks like the is red eyeshadow under it and swept across the eyelid. Well, I am still in a lot of pain. But it is to be expected. How are you today?
