At Goode Elementary in York City, Pennsylvania yesterday, Joe Biden taught some 4th graders a valuable economic lesson: “If you need more money, just take it from rich people.”

From The Blaze by way of Ace of Spades:

Biden actually told the schoolchildren that, in order to rehire some 400,000 teachers nationwide, along with thousands of police officers and firefighters, all that needs to be done is tax wealthy individuals at a higher rate than they are currently taxed.

Then, in a move perhaps intended to woo, Biden told Lenid Keebaugh’s class of fourth-graders, “We’re going to give you some money to hire them back.”

Take about $500 in additional taxes from someone who makes a million dollars – “a million dollars,” Biden stressed – and those jobs will come right back.

Biden must have forgotten to blame Bush, which normally is part of his stock motivational speech to school children, but there’s such an urgency to pass the recently voted down jobs bill that I suppose the oversight is understandable:

A much more useful presentation would have been for Joe to show the kids where all that free money he keeps talking about is actually coming from:

Joe Biden update: You might have heard Joe Biden’s latest scare tactic of telling people that if the “jobs bill” isn’t passed, their chance of getting raped, robbed or murdered will increase.

Jason Mattera at Human Events confronted Biden about that claim. Check out the video here. The Sheriff got a little testy and a couple of aides whisked him away.
