Wa wa wa wa wa wa wa wait a second here. Who is the president? Did Biden forget that he is the vice president, and Obama is the president?
Here’s some video of Vice President Biden in Iowa Monday complaining about the predicament of the middle class. President Obama has supposedly – he didn’t, but stick with me here – supposedly made the middle class the cornerstone of his presidency. And the cornerstone, like every other chunk of the foundation around the Obama White House, seems a little wobbly.
Does Biden realize he sounds like a Republican? I guess if he is going to run for president, he can’t say everything’s perfect, leave it alone. But if the middle class didn’t benefit from Obama-Biden, what was the point?
The point, as you and I know, was not the middle class. It was redistribution.
“But you know the truth: The middle class is still in trouble. The middle class is still in trouble. You don’t have to know the numbers, you can feel it. You can feel it in your bones.
Anyway, he gave some numbers:
According to all the statistics, all the economic Policy Institute, and all these groups that are outside experts in the economy, the gross domestic product means the nation grew over the last ten years by over 25 percent, and productivity went up over 30 percent. But middle class wages went up, according to this group, by only 14 cents. Hear me? 14 cents. You know it. You don’t have to know the number, but you know. The middle class has been left behind.
