Politco reports Biden, speaking at an event in Virginia said Republicans and Wall Street would put Americans "back in chains."
"They've said it. Every Republican's voted for it. Look at what they value, and look at their budget. And look what they're proposing," Biden said about Rep. Paul Ryan's budget proposal.
"[Romney] said in the first hundred days, he's going to let the big banks write their own rules — unchain Wall Street. They're going to put y'all back in chains," Biden said.
UPDATE: Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul calls Biden remarks "slanderous," urges Obama to denounce them. Full statement here.
