Mitt donated $4M in 2011 to private charities. This is about 20x more than BO. Both candidates have donated a lot. Private charity works.

Note also that, by not deducting the full eligible amount – due to the ridiculous optics of “fairness” and the tax code -, Mitt actually donated a bunch of money to the Federal government. Not even Warren Buffet is willing to do that.
