Obamas and Bidens Tax Returns for 2008

Most of the money for Obama, again, from his book sales. Folks, still buying the Obama books.

Combined, the family brought in an adjusted gross income of $2,656,902, mostly from the sale of the President's books. The Obamas paid $855,323 in federal income tax.
