Math Busters: Biden Says GOP Supports $500T Tax-Cut, Adds Obama Admin. Will Save 'Billion of Oils


Is it just us, or does it seem like Vice President Joe Biden is “literally” incapable of getting through a speech without saying something that makes everyone (who’s still paying attention) sit up and ask: “What?”

"But you can't erase what you've already done, they've voted to extend tax cuts for the very wealthy, giving a $500 trillion dollar tax-cut to 120,000 families,” the vice president said during a campaign speech in Wisconsin on Friday.

As always: What?

We're familiar with the Obama campaign's bogus $5 trillion dollar tax claim, but, man, $500 ​trillion? Surely, this is just a bunch of stuff (or malarkey):

But wait! There's more! The vice president also touched on energy policy.

“We will save $1.7 trillion dollars at the pump and $12 billion dollars of gas – billion of oils of, uh, uh, gas, uh, of oil over the next 10 years,” the vice president the same Wisconsin crowd.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” he continued, “we’re also going to make sure that the middle class deserves a fair and equitable tax system.”

Final Thought -- These silly slip-ups and misstatements are just that: silly. But in an age where certain members of the media believe stray comments about "binders" and Big Bird merit wall-to-wall coverage, well, we just wanted to see how the other half lives.
