Biden Considers his $379K Income Middle Class

by Keith Koffler on July 11, 2012, 11:42 am

Vice President Biden thinks he’s in the middle class, even though his income far exceeds the $250,000 threshold President Obama set for raising income taxes on the rich.

According to his 2011 tax returns, Biden and his wife Jill had an adjusted gross income of $379,000 last year. And that, Biden siggested Tuesday in remarks to the National Council of La Raza in Las Vegas, puts him squarely in the middle class:

For middle class folks like me and most of you, owning a home is maybe the single most consequential element of our existence to be able to provide for our families.

Here’s some video of Biden’s remarkable claim, in which he suggested rich guys like Romney don’t understand common men like him who are only making close to $400,000 a year:

If Biden feels he is middle class, it may be due to his apparent inability to manage his finances.

According to a Dec. 1, 2011 report by the Center for Responsive Politics, Biden actually has a negative net worth.

On the other end of the Obama administration’s net worth spectrum are Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Both had enough liabilities to place their estimated worth in the negative.

Biden’s low estimated net worth is a result of relatively small income from assets and six liabilities which totaled  an average of $337,000. These include mortgages and home equity loans with a bank in his home state of Delaware, two lines of credit and a loan borrowed from his life insurance policy.

But if Biden considers himself middle class, Obama certainly does not. Obama’s proposal to jettison the Bush tax cuts for “the rich” pertains to those making more than $250,000 per year – whether they have somehow lost all their money or not.

The reason to call him out isn’t to vilify Biden for his high income, it’s to call him out for portraying himself as middle class. He’s one of the working class Americans just trying to make ends meet unlike Mitt Romney the rich guy. That is class warfare my friend and you’re getting suckered right into it.

I’m confused by the responses here. Are we saying that Biden is actually “rich” and won’t admit it? Because normally the people here who consider themselves in the $250K+ bracket grouse that they are NOT rich and that Obama should get off their asses.

But if you are saying that Biden is wealthy and out of touch, then should I toe this blog’s line and tell you to get a haircut, hippy?

Reply

Mike July 11, 2012 at 2:25 pm

You’re not getting are you? He is saying he’s middle class at $379,000 a year. Obama is calling people that make over $250,000 “rich”. Obama wants the “rich” to pay more taxes to support the middle class. So what is Joe? Will he be taxed to support people like himself? I’m confused. Sounds like you are too.

Reply

Death Ray July 11, 2012 at 2:34 pm

On the contrary. The idea that the “rich” and the “middle class” cannot occupy the same sphere is the sort of thing politicians might imply, but I doubt Obama has ever used the word “rich” to define any demographic (politicians prefer the word “wealthy”.) As a matter of fact, if I ever heard a politician even acknowledge the existence of an upper class, I’d probably crap bananas.

There is no income threshold that defines the “middle class” any more than the lower, upper or leisure classes. It is all subjective.

You really don’t get it, do you? We could care LESS how much the VP makes – though, working in a job being paid for by the tax payers, there should be a reasonable limit on his salary. I’m fine with where it is at the moment. The problem we have is that he is NOT in the middle class (by his/his boss’ own standard) and he is a liar and hypocrite for claiming to be. That is the problem we have with Joe. Part of it, anyway. The other, and much larger part, is that HE, and his boss, are the ones castigating those who make over 200k/250k a year as “not paying their fair share”, and yet he is squarely in this group himself and he does such despicable things as charge the government (the taxpayers, in other words) for the housing of his security detail on his private property.

Are you actually arguing that people in the 1% are not rich. This would put them in the top 0.1% in the world. Just because you can not buy a jet does not mean you are not rich. According to what you are saying only large business owners and executives are rich.

Also as a I side note I do not hate Obama. I just disagree with him politically.

Reply

Joel July 13, 2012 at 1:02 am

By the standards of most of the world’s population almost everyone in America is “rich”. The whole point of this rich vs not rich argument.. in this instance is that Biden claimed to be part of the middle class while his income (which doesn’t include the perks that go along with being VP – private car, a paid for residence to use if he wishes, and so on). While he is claiming to be part of the middle class, his boss’s rhetoric, and his, and their policy initiatives specifically call people with an income level that they themselves maintain “rich”. It is hypocritical for Biden to claim that he is middle class.

Reply

Deb July 11, 2012 at 1:35 pm

you are right, his income by itself will not get him a mansion or a private jet, but as far as income levels, his pure salary puts him outside the middle class – even outside the upper middle class as defined by the government.

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with him making 379 large a year. The problem is he thinks he’s “middle class”. Not even CLOSE. I consider myself “UPPER middle class” and I’m only bringin’ in about 80 large AGI…c’mon back to reality.

I guess I need to reevaluate my understanding of the classes in this class warfare that obummer and biden has declared on the American people.

$379,000 is now middle class, so if the “poor” don’t have to pay taxes then we need to raise that poor bar a little, say to $175,000.00 in combined income and no one at or under that amount is required to pay taxes.

On a side note, everyone talks about of stupid biden is, so what does that make obummer? He is the one that pick him as his VP. Makes you wonder about his decision making abilities.

Dr.? What did you get your doctorate in…and where? Even if it was Ivy League, that institution has clearly become a liberal diploma mill.

The middle class does not include those who either live in the luxury and style of Vice President Biden, nor do they make the amount of money which VP Biden and his wife make.

You claim he and his wife have paid their fair share. Then how can you and those of your liberal ilk claim that those who have paid more than Biden still haven’t paid theirs? The fact of the matter is, a person’s “fair share,” is pro rata, not some bogus amount based on how much they make. If we really want to talk about what is, “fair,” then the rich should pay less than the poor because the rich are the only ones who are actually contributing.

I don’t make $100K a year and the government taxes me into submission…not to mention all the ridiculous fees I am required to pay each year just to maintain my professional licenses so that I can continue to work and contribute.

What ever happened to the concept of FREEDOM? I can’t figure out why black Americans would ever vote for anyone who advocates a policy which reduces freedom. Any and all government intrusion into our lives curtails our freedom to live and act as we choose. I am not a libertarian, as I believe some government is necessary if we are to live in a peaceful society, but it should only amount to smallest amount of government as possible.

When one relies on the government for sustenance they have traded their freedom for comfort at the expense of their fellow man. In doing so, they have become slaves to the government, which takes from someone else something which they have earned by industry, and given to another who has not earned it. There is a legal term for this…it’s called stealing.

You people that claim Biden is middle class are once again making statements based on your feelings rather than facts. Less than 3% of Americans make more than $250,000.

It doesn’t matter what Joe the clown says, most voters have already made up their minds to vote for Obama or Romney or to stay home.

Decrying the hypocrisy of Biden and his ilk is like trying to teach a pig to sing – it’s a waste of your time and just annoys the pig.

OK so Joe is middle class. With an income of $379,000 that must mean that we have either runaway inflation, a country with no poverty, zero unemployment, or he is delusional. There is a predetermined poverty line, so that means everyone who makes less than $150,000 must be poor.
I don’t know why he would want to claim a middle class ranking when he was bragging about he nor his family never working a blue collar job in their lives and those who do are dirtbags.

Just remember that he had to end his presidencial campaign because it was found he was guilty of plagiarism. Not a lot of GOOD original thoughts from the man. Old Joe is not a very intelligent human being. In fact I would dare to say the man is a moron.

“For middle class folks like me and most of you, owning a home is maybe the single most consequential element of our existence to be able to provide for our families.”

So why are you and your boss making it nigh to impossible for mature American citizens who’ve never abused illicit drugs and don’t have a criminal record to find a job by giving tax breaks to employers who hire certain foreign nationals, “at-risk” youth, former felons and drug users?

People believe that Joe Biden accepted the position as Vice President in order to serve the citizens of the United States. Ah-ha! fooled ya; he’s really honing his skills as a comedian for a side kick spot on the Jay Leno show. This guy is always good for a laugh!
