EXCERPT:

BIDEN: “By the way, I didn’t hear any of our friends who were criticizing this plan say that the corporate tax cut, which added $2 trillion to the debt, the Trump tax cut, $1.9 trillion in debt wasn't paid for, the vast majority which went to 1% of the top wage earners, I didn’t hear anybody holler in this recovery, this so called, before I became president, this K-shaped recovery where billionaires made $300 billion more during this period. Where is the outrage there? I’m not trying to punish anybody, but damn it, maybe it’s because I come from a middle-class neighborhood. I’m sick and tired of ordinary people being fleeced."
