Biden, speaking in Iowa on 4 October.
Hat tip to the Weekly Standard.
“On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more,” said Biden. “My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Guess what? Yes we do in one regard. We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. That’s not a tax raise, that’s called fairness where I come from.”
Those evil wealthy people have to be punished for their success. The trouble is, everyone has been getting screwed by Obamanomics for the last four years, especially the middle class.
