Biden Says Romney Would Put Middle Class ‘Back in Chains’

Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks today that presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s regulatory policies would put middle-income Americans “back in chains” opened a war of words between the two campaigns.

Biden said to laughter and boos from a crowd in Danville, Virginia, that Romney would “let the big banks once again write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put you all back in chains.”
