‘I feel worse off, but then again, I didn’t get a check for eight grand from the government…’ President “Middle Class”Joe Biden on Americans whining about inflation

“Middle Class” Joe is a name Biden gave himself.

“I’ve never been gainfully employed in my life.” “Middle Class Joe” Biden [from Scranton] joked

The 2016 election ended an unbroken 44-year career for Biden as a federal government employee.

“When we got sworn in, the president of the United States asked me to chair — you know, old middle-class Joe,” he joked. “If I heard one more thing about the scrappy kid from Scranton, Pennsylvania, and carrying a lunch bucket — I never carried a lunch bucket, but I guess I’m the middle-class guy.”

Joe Biden: Americans Complaining About Inflation Forgot We Sent Them a Check for $8,000

President Joe Biden on Thursday reminded Americans suffering from inflation and high gas prices that he sent them a check for $8,000 in 2021.

“There’s reason to be down but I started thinking about it … the first year, we were able with the rescue plan, we were able to send them a check for eight grand,” he said. “I mean a check. Beyond that by the way, there was more than that.”

“That’s a lot of money, and so it helped save a lot of people in terms of getting thrown out of their home and rental housing and a whole range of things,” he said.

Biden cited his own experience growing up in a middle-class home as proof he understood what Americans were going through.

“It’s like whoa, I feel worse off, but then again, I didn’t get a check for eight grand from the government among other things,” he said.

“Does that make any sense to everybody or is it just me?” he asked his advisers.
