Biden: ‘Republicans Are Going to Put Y’all Back in Chains’ [Video]
Vice President Biden leveled his heaviest charge yet against Mitt Romney and his vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan. Speaking at a campaign event in Virginia on Tuesday, Biden told the Obama supporters that they have more to fear than just an attack on the middle class if Romney is elected, and that their very freedom is at stake.
“Look at their budget, and what they are proposing,” Biden said. “Romney wants to let–he said in the first hundred days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street.”
Biden then paused, and said, “they going to put y’all back in chains.”
Biden’s language may seem extreme to some, but historically, working class people have been enslaved by corporations, and it has been mostly liberals who’ve fought against that enslavement.
For example, liberal activists fought for the 8 hour work day, overtime pay, the minimum wage, the G.I. Bill, the Civil Rights Act, Social Security, Medicare, the Clean Water Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Without these reforms, especially the 40 hour work week, corporations would still have total control over our lives, and that is, as Biden says, slavery.
