Biden, Ryan Clash as Both Pledge Unemployment Below 6%

Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan each pledged that their parties’ proposals would bring U.S. unemployment below 6 percent as they clashed on foreign affairs and domestic policy during their only debate.

“We can and we will get it under 6 percent,” Biden said, without giving a timeframe for the figure to recede from the 7.8 percent for last month.
