Biden Says He’s ‘The Poorest Man in Congress,’ Has No Savings Acount

Vice President Joe Biden referred to himself as “the poorest man in Congress” during his speech at a White House summit for working families on Monday. 

When discussing the struggles that working parents experience as they balance their careers and family time, Biden told the audience, “I can speak a little bit from my own experience.” 

Though he noted that he is wearing a “mildly expensive suit” and has a good pension and salary, the vice president said, “I don’t own a single stock or bond . . . I have no savings account.”

Biden went on to acknowledge that he has been “very, very fortunate” with his career.
