Short Link to this Quote:
Biden was arguing that during an economic recession which harms many poorer citizens, wealthy millionaires have not faced the same level of financial burden or hardship.
His statement that “it’s time we just ask” implies he believed millionaires should be asked to contribute more, perhaps through higher taxes or other policies, in order to help stimulate the economy and provide support for those struggling in the recession.
