Joe Biden is back.
It’s not only President Barack Obama who has won re-election.
The irrepressible vice president has a new lease on the Naval Observatory.
“There is in, quote, the neighborhood we come from, $2,000 to $4,000 less in your paycheck next year makes a material difference,” Vice President Joe Biden is shown telling a lunch circle at a diner. “An additional $3,000 or $4,000 a year fundamentally impacts what you can do to provide for those, those people who are your blood, your family, and are relying on you.”
It’s part of the “#My2K” campaign at the White House, asking people what the $2,200 that a typical family stands to lose if personal income tax rates revert to pre-Bush levels at year’s end.
And Biden, who has a much more private, weekly luncheon with the president scheduled at the White House today, clearly is enjoying the conversation.
