Rutgers man this is deadly earnest and how they can justify.
I can justify.
Raising taxes in the middle class has been very.
The last four years.
How -- lord's days can they justify.
Raising their taxes and these tax cuts.
Vice President Biden just today.
The -- that the middle class over the last four years is very close very.
We get every.
There are other things very -- regulations are being married -- taxes are being -- him Barry I'm borrowing we're being very.
By the Obama administration's economic failures.
But the vice presidential candidates talking taxes on the stump ahead of this big debate.
Here behind us -- Richie.
The Richie auditorium there will be a lot of talk about the economy just not for the ladies we talked to today.
And their concerns but for a lot of people wanted to know the next four years what it would look like under both administrations -- back with our panel.
Steve your thoughts about what was said on the trail today.
What lies ahead for these two candidates.
What's a rather instant thing that Vice President Biden -- I mean they've tried to clean it up in the hours.
Since he made that comment but I think he's right the middle class has in fact been buried over the past four years.
We've seen rod drop in -- in real income real household income over the past four years.
It's even worse than it was during the immediate recession following the call of -- financial class of 2008.
So that's -- argued that I would expect governor Romney to pick up but I think the real question going into the debates.
It -- going to see the governor Romney that we saw.
-- sometimes in the prime Republican primary debates was tough and aggressive and the sort of talk to fight to his opponents.
Whether we're gonna see this softer governor Romney that we seen I think more on the campaign trail over the past week week ten days.
That's been -- softer and trying not to drive the contrast so much.
Well I think I think that obviously Vice President Biden was talking about the consequences of the deep recession in the country went -- and as the administration from the administration's perspective from his perspective as they were trying to get the economy straightened out.
That the middle class has had a rough time in what he's saying.
You know again being generous to him because -- it's obviously there's some -- type material for the Romney campaign.
But that the administration the Obama administration has been pulling no middle class -- and seeks to continue to do so I think tomorrow night.
You can hear lots of discussion about taxes about Medicare about what the middle class.
Really can't expect going forward so that's it that's the argument that's gonna come interestingly not just Obama but also from -- Okay Charles there's one -- -- is gonna have to do amid all the attacking.
The reason that his numbers are so.
In the in the swing states -- they are in the national polls.
Is that because of six months of advertising about he wants to.
To cut the taxes for the relation to tax the middle class you -- -- after that and they are both faults.
I think he needs to look at the camera straight explain in the seconds into -- -- is completely false.
And today and that turned to the president and ask him how he can -- his entire election.
On a way of presenting the Romney's position that is so at odds with the truth.
So it's a -- -- defense and then I mean he he goes on offense.
But that I think is something he has to do because those images of him.
As cutting the taxes -- the rich Q and putting the burden on them abilities of middle class is killing him.
Panel as always from different parts of the country thank you Steve one Charles that's it.
