Out of the mouths of Democrats...
What a doofus!
But Biden is right when he says the middle class has been "buried the last four years."
Obama's America has been hell.
Have you tried to find a job?
Have you seen the value of your home plummet?
Are you ready to lose your doctor? Get ready. It won't be long.
Yeah, good times.
The Romney campaign has a great response to Biden's "buried" remark:
Buried Under More And More Debt: Since President Obama took office, the national debt has surpassed $16 trillion – an increase of $5.4 trillion. (U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 10/2/12)
Buried Under Falling Incomes: “Median household incomes have fallen 8.2 percent since President Obama took office and continue to drop despite the official end of the recession, a new study shows. Data compiled by Sentier Research found that since the economic recovery technically began in June 2009, median household income has dropped 5.7 percent.” (“Household Income Down 8.2 Percent Since Obama Took Office, Study Shows,” Fox News, 9/26/12)
Buried Under High Unemployment: More than 23 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 10/2/12)
Buried Under Rising Gas Prices: Under President Obama, gas prices have more than doubled from $1.85 per gallon to $3.80 per gallon. (U.S. Energy Information Agency, 10/2/12)
What would four more years of President Obama mean for the middle class? More debt and higher taxes. AEI has calculated that the annual cost of President Obama’s current and looming debt burden amounts to $4,000 per year in higher taxes on the middle class.
