Joe Biden: The middle class has been buried in the last 4 years

by

Once again, Joe Biden inadvertently tells the truth. “This is deadly earnest. How they can justify, how they can justify, raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried in the last four years.”

He’s right – buried under debt. ($16T) Buried under falling incomes (down almost 10% since 2008). Buried under high unemployment. (23 million and counting)

Time for a change.

    My house lost 50 percent of its value when the Bush administration crashed the economy. My 401(k) went down the tubes. Since then, I spent an anxious four months without a job, and the credit union is paying less than 1% on my savings. But there are tens of millions of Americans worse off, made homeless and broke through no fault of their own.

    Meanwhile, Wall Street got bailed out and the number of millionaires in America has soared to a record 3.1 million. Frank Luntz told Republicans never to say the words “middle class.” The Tea-GOP did whatever it could to stymie economic recovery, and even tried to shut down the federal government. Speaker John Boehner promised “jobs-jobs-jobs” two years ago, but Congress has ELIMINATED over a million public sector jobs.

    Washington politicians are trying to impose austerity and deficit reduction when our country needs more jobs. You can’t budget-cut your way to prosperity. More tax breaks for the rich are not the answer, because we know that trickle-down economic theory does not work.

    Nobody is asking the rich and the corporations to pay their fair share of taxes. We still have 68,000 soldiers deployed halfway around the world in Afghanistan at a cost of $6 billion a month, without a clear mission. On average, one of them dies every day.

    Romney-Ryan are offering ideas that have already been discarded. Their only plan is tax cuts for the rich and austerity for everyone else.

    Time for a change is right. We need to change from an obstructionist Congress that refuses to work with the President to one that will work with the administration to do what is needed to move our nation’s economy forward.
