GOP mocks Biden 'tax cuts for toasters' Mike Allen
Tue Sep 16, 10:58 AM ET

Republicans had fun giving out tire gauges after Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) suggested folks save energy by inflating their tires. Now, some toaster tomfoolery may be in the offing.

Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) said on NBC's "Today" show: "Our tax plan would take that tax cut of another $130 billion that John [McCain] wants to give to people making over $250,000 next year, not let it go forward and give it to the middle class - the very people who desperately need it to stay in their homes, to buy food, to take care of the gas, to fill up their tank, to be able to go out and buy a toaster, to employ people."

The McCain campaign's Joe Pounder ("his real name," as The New Yorker recently put it) crowed in his morning e-mail to reporters: "[D]id you catch Joe Biden saying this morning that their tax cut will allow Americans to buy a 'toaster'? Nothing says a sound economic plan like 'buying a toaster.'" :lol:

Republicans also posted a YouTube clip of an exchange between Biden and the "Today" host, Meredith Vieira, in which he disputed the idea that economists have questioned raising taxes in a recessionary economy.

VIEIRA: "Senator, you and Senator Obama are calling for tax increases on the wealthy. And there are many economists who say that that would hurt the economy even more."

BIDEN: "I don't know any economists who are saying that." :eek:

Expect to see a list by the end of the day. :lol: :lol:
