We were waiting for either Joe Biden to make a gaffe at Tuesday night’s #DemDebate or for his eyes to start bleeding, but so far his eyes look fine. He did trip up some viewers, though, when he talked about those clipping coupons in the stock market. We thought maybe he meant those frugal middle-class workers clipping coupons in the supermarket, but that’s not what he meant either. You figure it out:
"Why in God's should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market… pay a lower tax rate than someone who is a school teacher and a firefighter." pic.twitter.com/e16Ut3tLil

It’s true. $1.00 off Amazon stock coupon was in the Sunday paper.

In the old days you did have a physical bond coupon that you used to collect your interest payment.

It's a relic of the analog era, but yes, "clipping coupons" was a real thing that is now a manner of speaking, albeit in relation to bonds, not stocks.

Bonds had coupons payments at one time,he is old very old .

Biden has been in so deep for so long with "old money" liberals that he's talking about the old timey way of clipping & depositing interest "coupons" from bonds. Only fatcat insiders use that term.

Clipping coupons is actually a saying for collecting interest on bonds or in this case, dividends from equities. I guess he means he wants to tax all dividends as ordinary income

He is thinking about war bonds
