Vice President Joe Biden, during a speech in North Carolina, made the following statement.
My dad used to have another saying, for real. And, by the way, I’ve been saying this for 30 years. And I’m glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tell you, say, ‘Look, let me tell you what’s important to me, what I value.’ My dad would go, ‘No, no. Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value.’
Putting aside the slight against Ryan and his dead father, Joe Biden’s statement is incredibly revealing. Since the Democrats have failed to pass a budget for over 1,000 days, it occurred to me that there exists a window into the soul of the Democrats in Washington.
