It has been well known for a long time that Vice President Joe Biden was the “poorest” US Senator for many years, and that he lived on his salary as a Senator, plus the teaching salary of his wife, and that they only had one home in Delaware, and that he rode to work regularly on Amtrak. His assets were only his house, and their salaries, and that they did not have any real wealth! It was clear that he was worth far less than a million dollars in total assets, an amazing statement when more than half of the Congress is shown to be millionaires and more.
Biden has just pointed out that he has no savings account, and no stocks and bonds, but admits he has a good pension awaiting him, and is not complaining about his salary as a US Senator in the past, and as Vice President now.
He is doing this, quite frankly, to contrast himself with Hillary Clinton, who complained that she and her husband were “broke” when they left the White House, and that they are not privileged like some wealthy people, but yet with more than $100 million earned in speeches and books by both the Clintons, it seems strange to talk about their finances as if they are one of us, although they have committed their careers to doing good deeds for others!
The point is that if the American people want a person close to themselves in financial status, although still better than most average Americans, then they will want Joe Biden as their next President!
