“The economy is back in a, excuse the expression, in a macroeconomic sense,” Biden said. “Everything is good except for middle class people.”
“Since 2000 the gross domestic product has increased 29 percent, productivity 36 percent, most studies show middle calls people had a 14-cent increase in their pay over the last 14 years,” he continued.
“The middle class is hurting, they are hurting. The middle class has been the glue that held the social fabric of this country together for the last hundred years,” he added.
