Biden: Romney Banking Policies Will Put 'You All Back in Chains'

Tuesday, 14 August 2012 02:09 PM EDT

Vice President Joe Biden charged that Mitt Romney’s policies on banking would put Americans “back in chains,” NBC News reported.

Biden, known for his over-the-top rhetoric, made the comment in a campaign stop in Danville, Va. It apparently stems from Romney opposition to financial reforms enacted by the Obama administration in response to the 2008 financial crisis.

"Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he's gonna let the big banks again write their own rules," Biden said according to NBC. “'Unchain Wall Street!" Biden added, "They're going to put you all back in chains."

The Romney campaign labeled the remarks as a “new low” after weeks of “slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney.”

“The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said according to NBC. "President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments."
