Joe Biden Says He Doesn’t Have a Savings Account, Definitely Has a Savings Account

Vice President Joe Biden prepares to dance with his wife Jill during the Home States Ball, Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2009, in Washington.

As Hillary Clinton attempts to differentiate between rich as hell and “truly well off,” Joe Biden would like to remind everyone that he’s an everyman — an average Joe, if you will, which might be worth remembering come 2016. “Look at Biden, man, you’ve got a mildly expensive suit on,” the vice-president said at the White House’s Working Families summit this morning, anticipating the doubters. “This is the poorest man in Congress, he still makes a lot of money — and I do, by the way, I do.”

Don’t hold it against me that I don’t own a single stock or bond. I have no savings account, but I got a great pension and I got a good salary,” he added. “For real!” Except not for real.

Vice President Biden’s financial disclosures from last year show that he has a savings account valued at up to $15,000, along with eleven investment funds and four checking accounts. He does, however, have a mortgage, which basically means, in Clinton parlance, that he’s “dead broke.” Just like us!
