While appearing on Face the Nation, Biden stated,
"It is worse, quite frankly, than everyone thought it was, and it's getting worse every day."
"There's been no good news, and there's no good news on the immediate horizon," he said. "The only good news is the president acted swiftly; he's put together an economic stimulus package that we believe, and outsiders believe, will create 3 million to 4 million new jobs and set a new framework for the economy to develop on, a new foundation. And so we're off and running, but it's going to get worse before it gets better."
Interpretation, we have this idea that looks great on paper, it's gonna cost you and 5 generations of your families a lot of money, and we aren't sure it's gonna work. So, hang on it's gonna be a bumpy and expensive ride, even though it doesn't have to be.
