Vice President Joe Biden undercut Obama’s campaign speeches where he promised the middle class would be a thing to be desired.
During a stump speech for Congressman Bruce Braley (D), he announced that the Obama administration has done nothing to help out the middle class.
“But you know the truth. The middle class is still in trouble,” Biden said. “You don’t have to know the numbers, you can feel it. You can feel it in your bones.”
Talk about timing. Supposed to be inspiring the voters and Democratic party, Biden goes on to site all the economic numbers that are plaguing the middle class.
“According to all the statistics, all the economic policy institutes, and all these groups that are outside experts in the economy, the gross domestic product means the nation grew over the last 10 years by over 25 percent, and productivity went up over 30 percent,” Biden said.
“But middle class wages went up…by only 14 cents. Hear me? 14 cents. You know it. You don’t have to know the number, but you know. The middle class has been left behind.”
