Vice President Joe Biden admitted to a group of supporters in New Hampshire this afternoon that the President would have been able help the economy “much, more” if the Tea Party hadn’t taken the House.
Biden showed the audience the Obama campaigns chart of job growth during the President’s first term in office and accused the Tea Party for stalling the recovery, because of the debt limit fight.
“Imagine where we’d be if the Tea Party hadn’t taken control of the House of Representatives,” Biden said adding that they were “a group set on obstructionism.”
“They have one overwhelming goal: prevent President Obama from a second term, with no – apparently no care of the consequences to the economy,” he said. Biden insisted that the president persevered in spite of their obstruction and demonstrated “important progress” that could be measured.
It’s the Tea Party’s fault that Barack Obama added a record $5 trillion in new debt in just three years.
It’s the Tea Party’s fault that the labor force participation rate is at the lowest level since 1981.
It’s the Tea Party’s fault more people dropped out of the work force last month than found jobs.
That’s right, Joe. It’s the Tea Party’s fault.
