Jeb Bush proud of his charitable giving

Jeb Bush says he’s proud of his charitable giving. He shouldn’t be.

One of the most humiliating revelations from Jeb Bush’s tax records, which he posted online Tuesday, is that Bush is a true Scrooge when it comes to charitable giving.

In 2013, he gave $110,616.

That seems like a lot, until you consider it’s only 1.5 percent of his $7.3 million income that year.

That tax cycle wasn’t an aberration.

Every year since leaving the Florida governorship, Bush has given 3 percent or less of his income to charity, despite making millions of dollars every year.

Bush is just fine with his giving.

“I’m proud of what Columba and I have contributed,” he declared upon releasing the records.

He shouldn’t be.
