WHEN JOE'S TALKING HE'S LOSING:

Biden Defends Comment That, for the Wealthy, 'It's Time to Be patriotic' (Matthew Jaffe, September 18, 2008, Political Radar)

At a Thursday rally in an Akron union hall, Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden defended his contention that it is time for wealthy Americans to be patriotic and pay more taxes.

Biden was asked by ABC News' Kate Snow in an interview aired Thursday morning on "Good Morning America" if people earning more than $250,000 a year would have to pay more taxes under an Obama-Biden administration.

"You got it," Biden replied. "It's time to be patriotic, Kate. Time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help America out of the rut, and the way to do that is they're still gonna pay less taxes than they did under Reagan."


The obvious question is why Democrats think people who aren't rich don't have any patriotic duty.
