Biden: I’m Poor Too!
by Keith Koffler on June 23, 2014, 10:58 am
Since it seems to be working so well for her, Vice President Biden jumped onto Hillary Clinton’s I’m-in-the-poorhouse bandwagon today, claiming he’s the “poorest member of Congress” and that he doesn’t own any securities.
From remarks this morning at the White House Working Families Summit in Washington.
He’s vice president of the United States of American. Not withstanding he’s the poorest member of Congress, he still makes a lot of money . . . Don’t hold it against me that I don’t own a single stock or bond,” he said. “Don’t hold it — I have no savings account. But I got a great pension and I get a good salary. For real. For real.
The vice president, as president of the Senate, is technically a member of Congress, I guess.
Actually, as Zeke Miller of Time pointed out, Biden does have a savings account. And Biden is damn sure right about his salary – he and his wife had an adjusted gross income of $407,009 last year.
I wonder if the guys at Biden’s new country club in Wilmington are gonna rib him about this?
What’s wrong with these people? Do Democrats really have to pretend to be poor in order to appease their voters? Did John F. Kennedy ever suggest he wasn’t filthy rich? Did FDR ever claim not to be a member of the patrician class? IS IT SUCH A STAIN ON THE HONOR OF DEMOCRATS TODAY TO HAVE MADE SOME MONEY?
And could they at least start telling the truth once in awhile?
SLOW JOE WAS RIPPING ON KILLARY FOR SAYING ALTHOUGH HER NET WORTH IS NORTH OF $100 MILLION,SHE’S STILL ‘NOT ALL THAT WEALTHY.’
