"I've said it before, I'm not going to shut down the economy," Biden said. "I'm not going to shut down the country. I'm going to shut down the virus."
The former vice president said he on his word "as a Biden" that he would be able to "build back" the economy without taxing anyone making less than $400,000 annually.
"Donald Trump inherited a strong economy from Barack and me just like he inherited everything in his life," Biden continued. "It's a fact. He squandered that economy like you squandered everything else, but folks, I promise you I guarantee you we can build back and build back better with an economy that rewards work, not wealth, and we can do it without raising taxes a single solitary penny on working-class or middle-class families."
"I guarantee you, my word as a Biden, no one making less than $400,000 will pay a single penny more in taxes, not a penny." the candidate promised.
