...And he says Republicans are out of touch with the middle class:
Vice President Joe Biden addressed 87 wealthy Democrats last night attending a fundraiser at the home of Sen. John Kerry in Georgetown. As they dined on New York strip steaks, and white truffle mashed potatoes underneath a outdoor tent, Biden criticized Republicans for being out of touch.
“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” Biden said according to the pool report, “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”
87 guests paid $10,000-per-couple to attend the dinner.
Hot Air's Ed Morrissey delights in the contrariness:
Ah, yes. Nothing quite says middle classlike grass-fed beef and white truffle mashed potatoes at the home of a multimillionaire, while bathed in soft pink lighting and collecting $10,000 checks. ...
But don’t worry — these folks know the middle class. They hire them to clean up afterwards.
