Biden & Patriotism
From an AP news story:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says that paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.
Biden says he and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama want to “take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.”
Under the Democrats’ economic plan, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of American taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.
Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that, in his words, “it’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
As Michael Silence at KnoxNews.com shows, Biden doesn’t live what he preaches:
Biden calls paying higher taxes a patriotic act
You mean like this?
Biden gave average of $369 to charity a year
Boy, talk about reinforcing the “stereotype” of spending someone else’s money.
What was the term LeMare used? Rat B—–d? Sounds about right.
