Biden hits talk radio circuit to get out the vote
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Joe Biden is pitching an Election Day get-out-the-vote message on talk radio. Biden is promoting the Obama administration's economic agenda to listeners in crucial Senate and governor race battlegrounds.
Biden spoke to stations Tuesday morning in Pennsylvania, Connecticut and in the Quad Cities area on the Iowa and Illinois border.
He told a Scranton radio host that even if Republicans win control of the Senate, he and President Barack Obama will push for policies that address what he called an "overwhelming dislocation of wealth."
Biden said wealthy hedge fund managers should not pay lower tax rates than middle-income Americans. He said oil and gas corporations should not get tax breaks. Obama has been unable to change those taxes even with a Democratic majority in the Senate.
