Biden: Millions of Americans Are In a ‘Depression’

by Katrina Trinko

Today in Iowa, Joe Biden said, “My grandpa used to say, from Scranton, he’d say, ‘Joey, when the guy in Dunmore – the next town over – when the guy in Dunmore is out of work, it’s an economic slowdown. When your brother-in-law is out of work, it’s a recession. When you’re out of work, it’s a depression. It’s a depression for millions and millions of Americans.” 

Somehow, I don’t think the Obama campaign was hoping that Joe Biden would say today that the country was in a depression. That doesn’t quite buoy the economic recovery narrative they’re pushing.
