Since it seems to be working so well for her, Vice President Biden jumped onto Hillary Clinton’s I’m-in-the-poorhouse bandwagon today, claiming he’s the “poorest member of Congress” and that he doesn’t own any securities.
From remarks this morning at the White House Working Families Summit in Washington.
He’s vice president of the United States of American. Not withstanding he’s the poorest member of Congress, he still makes a lot of money . . . Don’t hold it against me that I don’t own a single stock or bond,” he said. “Don’t hold it — I have no savings account. But I got a great pension and I get a good salary. For real. For real.
The vice president, as president of the Senate, is technically a member of Congress, I guess.
I wonder if the guys at Biden’s new country club in Wilmington are gonna rib him about this?
What’s wrong with these people? Do Democrats really have to pretend to be poor in order to appease their voters? Did John F. Kennedy ever suggest he wasn’t filthy rich? Did FDR ever claim not to be a member of the patrician class?
IS IT SUCH A STAIN ON THE HONOR OF DEMOCRATS TODAY TO HAVE MADE SOME MONEY?
And could they at least start telling the truth once in awhile?
