Washington, July 10: U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden has slammed the presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, calling him ‘George Bush on steroids’.
Addressing a crowd of about 1000 at a fundraiser for Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell, Biden also slammed the Republican party’s foreign policy as ‘right out of the Cold War.’
“Governor Romney and this new Republican Party – they have a social policy right out of the 1950s,” he said, accusing Romney of opposing Planned Parenthood and the GOP of trying to restrict women’s access to birth control.
According to News.com.au, Biden’s comments followed a speech by President Barack Obama.
Obama implored Congress to immediately extend the Bush tax cuts for those making less than 250,000 dollars a year.
Biden kept up the theme in Seattle, criticising Romney’s support for Republican Paul Ryan’s budget plan and the GOP’s call to extend the Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans as well. (ANI)
