Meanwhile, "Crazy Uncle Joe" Biden hit the stump on Thursday to push the so-called "Buffett Rule" which would essentially double capital gains taxes on the people who invest most in America. And won't that help stimulate the economy!
Champing at the bit to start throwing out anti-Romney rhetoric (and it's a real bit - so Joe can be reined in when necessary), Biden said that Mitt is one of those evil rich types who loves "tax loopholes" (which is how Dems describe the capital gains tax), and who is "out of touch" and "out of step" with basic American values. Like, apparently, creating trillion-dollar deficits and calling for class warfare.
Of course, even if the "Buffett Rule" were passed (which it won't be), it would only raise $54 billion over the next decade. Which Obama claims is a HUGE amount of money. Which is odd, because that's only one tenth of what he's cutting from Medicare ($540 billion) while claiming that it's no big deal.
