According To Joe Biden, Obama Is Raising Taxes On The Middle Class

At a campaign rally last week in Washington State for Sen. Patty Murray, Vice President Joe Biden said “Let me tell you what middle class is: Joe Biden.”

Well given that Joe Biden made $333,000 in AGI last year, I guess that means President Obama, according to Joe Biden, is raising taxes on the middle class since he makes above that $200,000/$250,000 threshold set by the president.

Of course, saying that $333,000 is middle class just shows that the term “middle class” is whatever you want it to be…

To be clear, I’m not going to play the class warfare game with Biden. I don’t think the Vice President’s taxes should be raised. Right now, I don’t think anyone’s taxes should be raised. We need to cut government back down to something we can actually afford.
