It’s been said that a politician commits a gaffe when he accidentally tells the truth. In a moment of uncharacteristic honesty, Job Biden did just that today in North Carolina. Here he is, explaining that the middle class has been “buried the last four years.”
Here’s the full context of the quote, “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?” It’s a great question, especially since, as an AEI report confirmed today, the only candidate threatening to raise taxes on the middle class is President Obama.
But Vice President Imbecile is right about one thing—the last four years have buried the middle class. President Obama’s first term has buried the middle class under more debt, record stretches of high unemployment, more government regulations, and declining incomes.
If we get four more years of such policies, we may never dig ourselves out.
