It's a difference of 13% & 6.5%, meaning that not only did Bush give a larger rwa number, yes, but he also gave a larger percentage. Are you going to tell me that Obama is so much poorer than Bush that he can't afford to give more?
Exactly, it's not the amount, it's the percentage.

Please consider England in your prayers!
