Biden Thanks House Democrats for Tough Votes on Stimulus Bill
By Perry Bacon Jr.
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Vice President Biden told House Democrats at their annual retreat today that the president's stimulus bill might not be an easy political vote, promising that in 2010, therefore, "I'll campaign for you or against you, whichever will you help you the most."
"I'm sure you'll be nailed in ads," he said, though he did not detail what in the bill might draw controversy.
The vice president, who is planning to depart later today for a security conference in Munich, Germany, went on to praise the House Democrats for their votes on the stimulus and said it was important for members of his party to hang together.
"We're all in this together. The only thing we can get wrong is not reaching a consensus among ourselves as a White House, a Senate and a House," he said.
As he prepared for one of his first major trips as vice president, he seemed to be enjoying some of the perks of his new job.
"That's a nice plane we got," he said. "I always voted for public housing, I never thought it would be this good."
