I see former President Obama made a public announcement that he and Michelle promise to donate $2 million to a charity of their choice. Personally, I commend them for their generosity. However, the political side of me wonders why he doesn't honor his "patriotic duty" and simply send it to the IRS for the federal government to distribute as they see fit. After all, it was his vice president, Joe Biden, who recommended that solution during a 2012 visit to New Hampshire.
Could it be that he feels his charity is a better recipient than, say, the border wall? May God bless him for not trusting the U.S. government to spend his money wisely ... and getting a legal tax break, too. - Keith Pease, Sioux City
