The Vice President of the United States was recently talking up presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, in a major way. Joe Biden was interviewed on Monday by CNN chief political analyst, Gloria Borger, and the topic went straight to income equality.
Biden praised Sanders for standing up for the working class and fighting against the wealthy 1%, unlike Clinton, who strongly supports Wall Street and capitalism in general. While not necessarily bad-mouthing Hillary, Biden said that income equality has never really been her thing.
Sanders, on the other hand, has a strong history of fighting for the little guy, and fighting against Wall Street and capitalism in general. It’s undeniable the Bernie is easily the most relatable candidate. Biden had this to say about what makes Bernie Sanders the people’s candidate:
‘Bernie is speaking to a yearning that is deep and real. And he has credibility on it.’
Vice President Biden did say that all the Democrats on the lineup this election are “great candidates,” but it’s pretty clear who he supports for President in 2016. GO BERNIE! Joe knows as well as the rest of us that people are sick and tired of working their lives away for CEO scraps.
Biden himself agrees that America used to be different. He remembers a time when, if you worked for a company, you were paid enough to be able to live well. Back when the middle class still existed, people who worked 40 hours a week, regardless of the job, did not live below poverty level. Two jobs? Who needed it back then!
Biden says that the topic of income inequality is a new bandwagon that Hillary has suddenly boarded:
‘Hillary’s focus has been other things up to now, and that’s been Bernie’s — no one questions Bernie’s authenticity on those issues.’
Biden continued by saying that “it’s relatively new for Hillary to talk about that,” but he did say that Mrs. Clinton has “come forward with some really thoughtful approaches to deal with the issue.” While trying to be as nice and as vice-presidential as possible, Biden was practically screaming FEEL THE BERN!
