Yet in a bizarre moment this week, Biden alleged that his Republican opponents are suffering from fiscal dementia.
“These guys are the fiscally demented”
According to The Hill, Biden made that claim during a speech given on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN).
“They’re gonna talk about big-spending Democrats again. Guess what? I reduced the deficit last year $350 billion,” he declared.
“This year, federal deficit is down $1 trillion-plus,” Biden asserted. “That’s a fact. And there’s gonna be hundreds of billions reduced over the next decade.”
“But so what? These guys are the fiscally demented, I think. They don’t quite get it,” the president said of Republicans.
