Biden announced an early endorsement from AFL-CIO, a federation of 60 unions worldwide, representing 12.5 million workers. “I’m proud to be the most pro-union president in American history,” he told the crowd in Philadelphia.
He also renewed his call for tax reform, which has been a challenge during his first term, even among some Democrats. He also once again called for a minimum tax on billionaires.
“It’s about time the super wealthy start paying their fair share,” Biden said, but he again stressed his pledge that no one making less than $400,000 will pay more in federal income taxes.
