DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden says Paul Ryan and Republicans must take responsibility for obstructing the economic recovery.
Biden says in the vice presidential debate that Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, has stood in the way of making middle-class tax cuts permanent and helping struggling homeowners. He says Ryan and Mitt Romney shouldn't talk about how they care about people until they're ready to pitch in.
Ryan says this isn't what a real recovery looks like. He points out that unemployment in Biden's hometown of Scranton, Pa., is at 10 percent, compared to 8.5 percent when Biden and President Barack Obama took office.
Ryan says Biden and Obama want to raise taxes on small businesses, while he and Romney want to help struggling Americans get good jobs.
