Biden: Middle Class ‘Was Declining’ During Clinton Years (Washington Free Beacon)

Vice President Joe Biden issued a damning critique of the Clinton economy Thursday, arguing that “the middle class was declining” throughout the 1990s.

Speaking before the American Federation of Teachers, Biden struck a blow to prospective presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who falsely claimed that her husband created “a hundred times” more jobs than Ronald Reagan.

“The fact is, the middle class started to get into trouble in the late ‘80s,” Biden said. “All through the ‘90s with the exception of two years, the middle class was declining.”
