Sununu says Biden ‘finally got something right’ when he said middle-class ‘buried’

Former Gov. John H. Sununu on Tuesday said Joe Biden &#';finally got something right&#'; when the vice president said in North Carolina the middle class has been &#';buried&#'; for the last four years.

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.
