Sununu says Biden ‘finally got something right’ when he said middle-class ‘buried’
Biden';s office clarified later that the vice president was referring to the lasting pressure put on the middle-class by the sharp economic decline under former President George W. Bush';s administration.
';How they can justify, how they (Republicans) can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years?'; Biden asked. ';Hhow in Lord';s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts.';
Sununu, Mitt Romney';s most outspoken surrogate, sarcastically called it ';a very important day in American history. Vice President Biden finally got something right.';
Sununu said the middle-class has been ';devastated'; under Obama with 23 million Americans ';either unemployed or under employed'; and median household income has declined.
';That is huge,'; he said
He said one of six American are living in poverty and 47 million are receiving good stamps, ';15 million Americans more than when President Obama took office.';
He said that despite Biden';s charge, Obama has actually raised taxes on the middle class.
Sununu said Romney cut taxes as the Massachusetts governor and has a plan to cut taxes on middle-class families by 20 percent.
';We have an economy in crisis and a President in denial,'; Sununu said.
