VP-Elect Biden to Have a Middle Class Task Force

Vice-President Elect has a new middle class task force

Task force members will include the secretaries of labor, health and human services, education, and commerce, as well as the directors of the National Economic Council, the Office of Management and Budget, the Domestic Policy Council and the head of the Council of Economic Advisers

Here are some past task force efforts of Vice Presidents.

The only one on this list who had any effectiveness was Al Gore.

So my question is why is the VP taking on the economic issues of the middle class instead of the President? This should be first and foremost their top priority.
