Champions Middle Class and Opposes Tax IncreasesA question for Joe Biden: Who has been President for the last four years? Of the last four years, who has controlled the Senate? Who has controlled the house?
In a campaign stop today, Joe Biden went on a rampage, I'm guessing against his own boss. Here's the quote:
This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name...
You're right, Joe. The middle class has been buried the last four years. And they're facing tax increases. Because of your boss and your party. For two years at the beginning of Obama's term the Democrats held the White House in addition to two super-majorities in Congress. Even after the 2010 wave, the Democrats maintained the White House and Senate. At any time your party could have said, "You know what, we may have disputes about what the top income tax rate should be, but let's go ahead and fix the other three as permanent." You never did that, Joe. You always wanted a tax increase on "The Wealthy" which includes most of the middle class.
You're right, Joe. This is deadly earnest. It is vital that entrepreneurs and the middle class be given the surety that they can keep more of what they earn.
