15. It would be better if he'd been taxed on more of it, though.

We'd all be better off if these people were taxed more, and letting government programs (that have the capacity to offer large-scale relief if they are funded) do their jobs.

I'm sure he means to be generous, but when rich people pick and choose their charities, it doesn't give a reliable funding stream to government agencies, and some of the charities could be things most of us would never want our money to go to.

This has a noblesse oblige feel to me. Just pay more in taxes, guy.
