Vice President Joe Biden went head to head with GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney over Medicare and the economy.
"What's gutsy about giving millionaires another tax break? What's gutsy about gutting Medicare, Medicaid, education?" Biden asked voters in Durham, NC, this week, according to UPI.com.
Romney and his new running mate, Paul Ryan, were just as quick to criticize the president and his policies.
UPI.com reported that Ryan told a crowd at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines to ask Obama where the jobs are.
The comment, which was made before a racially diverse crowd of about 900, has sparked criticism and backlash from Republicans, according to The Post.
Romney has said that in an effort to regulate the financial world, if elected, he would repeal the Dodd-Frank regulatory bill.
Is the former senator from the neighboring state of Delaware just being Biden? Or has presidential campaigning become too negative?
