I think it is important to get these facts out there before the Right-Wing starts their misinformation campaign.

In the first joint interview with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, the former vice president told ABC “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir that everybody should pay “their fair share.”
“I will raise taxes for anybody making over $400,000,” Biden told Muir, adding, “no new taxes” would be raised for anyone making under $400,000.
Tax policy is taking on additional significance for the 2020 presidential election, with the economic crisis inextricably tied to the pandemic, and more than 30 million Americans currently on unemployment.
Although Biden has been leading in the polls, polls also have shown that voters have greater confidence in President Donald Trump when it comes to the economy.
“Is it smart to tax businesses while you’re trying to recover?” Muir asked.
“It’s smart to tax businesses that are in fact making excessive amounts of money and paying no taxes,” Biden told Muir.
“It’s how we did it last time,” he said, in reference to the 2008 recession, adding that his work, at the time, with then-President Barack Obama, led to economic recovery, “with the largest, the most consecutive number of months of growth in jobs of any time in history. We did it the right way.”
The facts are that just like back in 2009 we need to raise taxes in order to fix this economy and get his country moving towards recovery.
Here is Joe Biden telling folks that the middle class will not be affected by these new taxes, however, they, along with every other American, will benefit from how those tax dollars are used.
Stay vigilant because this simple factual statement by Joe Biden is going to be used as a bludgeon against him in the campaign, and the exaggerations and outright lies will be withering.
However, Joe Biden knows what he is doing, because he did it before, along with a fellow named Barack.
